PHOTOS: Bowling Green Marchers Protest Deaths of Unarmed African-Americans
Nearly 200 people gathered in downtown Bowling Green Saturday to march from Circus Square Park to the Warren County Justice Center.
There were signs in memory of Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed in her home after the Louisville Metro Police Department carried out a no-knock warrant.
Bowling Green protestors also had signs in support of Black Lives Matter and spoke about the importance of voting.
Before the march to the Warren County Justice Center started, many people took turns speaking and having their voices heard.
Megan Huston with the Poor People's Campaign attended and asked all of the children to come up to the front and display their protest signs.

The Bowling Green Police Department was also in attendance, directing the crowd of protestors through the streets.
When protestors made it to the Warren County Justice Center, they were greeted by Kentucky Civil Rights Activist Charles Neblett.
