Until Freedom, a New York City-based social justice organization, is live streaming 26-hours of prayer for Breonna Taylor.

(CNN)Breonna Taylor was gunned down in her Louisville, Kentucky, home exactly six months ago Sunday.

A grand jury was empaneled Wednesday to investigate the shooting and eventually decide the fate of the three officers.

The grand jury is meeting at an alternate location because of safety concerns due to ongoing protests in Jefferson Square Park, which has been informally renamed as "Breonna Taylor Park. "

Her death contributed to the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement with Taylor and other Black victims of police violence, like George Floyd, becoming the faces of the movement.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who is leading the investigation into Taylor's death, tweeted that "conflicting rumors and reports" circulating on a daily basis about the investigation don't do anything to "advance justice. "

Palmer, Taylor's mother, called out Cameron on Instagram Thursday asking what his mother would think if he was the one gunned down by police.

Until Freedom, a New York City-based social justice organization, live streamed 26-hours of prayer for Taylor Sunday.

"Some people aren't protestors but they're in touch with their spirituality, so we're trying to provide an opportunity to get every person to participate in the fight for justice for Breonna Taylor. "

As the NFL season got fully underway Sunday, many players and coaches wore clothing depicting Taylor's name or picture.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton wore a "Breonna Taylor" facemask, the team tweeted.

Los Angeles Rams players wore "Black Lives Matter" shirts with pictures of different victims of police violence including Taylor, George Floyd and Tamir Rice, the team tweeted.

British race driver Lewis Hamilton wore a T-shirt that read "ARREST THE COPS WHO KILLED BREONNA TAYLOR" written on the front and "SAY HER NAME" above a photo of Taylor on the back.
