GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in downtown Grand Rapids today to commemorate Breonna Taylor Way.

Breonna Taylor, a Grand Rapids native, was killed by police in Louisville, KY back in March.

Justice for Black Lives, a Grand Rapids nonprofit organization, petitioned to change Monroe Center to Breonna Taylor Way in her honor over the summer and received unanimous approval.
