As Kentucky Derby weekend swiftly approaches, protesters are gathering in Louisville for the 100th-straight day to demand justice for Breonna Taylor.

Taylor, an unarmed 26-year-old Black woman, was fatally shot by police in her apartment on March 13.

Her name has been a rallying cry both nationwide and in Louisville, where protesters have taken to the street every day since May 28.

Friday is set to feature a day full of marches and speeches in and around downtown Louisville marking the 100th day of protests over her shooting.

On Saturday, marches and rallies are expected downtown and outside Churchill Downs, where the horse race will be run without fans in the stands.

Along with demonstrations by local protesters, who said they want the Derby canceled, the NFAC (Not F**king Around Coalition), a Black militia, plans to hold a formation.
