Public Defenders to ‘March for Black Lives’ today to Campbell, Kenton county courthouses

Public Defenders around the country are marching in remembrance of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and the countless others who died because of white supremacy.

Public defenders fight every day for the indigent, for the downtrodden, and to give a voice to the voiceless.

They are using their voices today to stand up for black lives, and against police brutality and racism.

They are marching to publicly declare our opposition to the systemic problems in our institutions of “justice” that have run unchecked for far too long.

The public is welcome to join the march. Face masks are required, and signs and T-shirts in support of the cause are encouraged. For everyone’s safety, we will obey all traffic laws.
