Supporting Organizations: Justice for Breonna

Visit Organizers' Event Webpage for Most Up-To-Date Info

Started as daily runs in San Diego and Encinitas, Run for Breonna is expanding locations across the US every Saturday in October until November 3rd (Election Day). Join us for a 5k run/jog or 2 mile walk here in Chicago!

Running is another way to protest police brutality and spread awareness in seeking justice for Breonna Taylor’s death. As we approach Election Day, it is crucial to raise awareness around local, state, and federal candidates and policies that will be on the ballot.

Related to the continuing investigation of Breonna Taylor’s murder, we want everyone to be reminded of action steps they can take to help get justice for Breonna Taylor.

We are promoting people to call/email, sign the petitions and donate. Join us until Brett Hankison, Myles Cosgrove, Joshua Jaynes and John Mattingly are held accountable for her murder. Judge Mary Shaw must also be held accountable. We will also be providing steps you can take locally in Chicago in line with Get Out the Vote.

For the walk/run, please make sure to do the following:
1) Register using the Eventbrite link below:

3) Take action after the run!

Black Lives Matter

December 30, 2020 - 5 PM

Comrades, we are not organizers, we started this page to amplify and promote existing protests organized by progressive leaders. Things are moving fast right now, and we have had submissions from individuals that could not be verified. We will continue to post protests that are publicly available.

Alternate ways to support the movement include monetary donations if you’re able (this thread lists many great choices), and following and supporting Black Lives Matter Chicago (https://twitter.com/BLMChi, https://www.instagram.com/blmchi/) and The Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression (https://twitter.com/CAARPRNow, https://www.instagram.com/CAARPRNow/)
