The Black Lives Matter Sacramento chapter continues to fight for the killing of unarmed Black man Stephan Clark. According to Capital Public Radio, the demonstrators plan to protest indefinitely until Clark receives justice.  BLM Sacramento chapter leader Tanya Faison said, “We’re going to be here every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (from 3:30-5pm) until we get justice.”

They will be protesting outside of the district attorney’s headquarters. The goal of the protest is to ensure the two officers involved in the shooting are fired and charged with murder.

The DA’s office has not released many details around the investigation other than it may take 6-12 months to complete.

One of the protesters Allisha Crockett encouraged others to join the cause. “You are seeing, in my opinion, folks out here that just want to be seen. But this is a good thing. It’s never a bad time for new folks to get involved in what’s old business.”
