SACRAMENTO, Calif. — More than 50 protesters marched through the streets of the neighborhood where Stephon Clark grew up; the neighborhood where he was also killed.
On Friday evening, demonstrators called for charges against the officers involved in Clark’s death, while marching near 29th and Meadowview in South Sacramento.
State and county prosecutors recently announced they would not file charges against the two Sacramento police officers involved.
Organizers say these peaceful demonstrations will continue until they received justice for the Clark family.
“This continues until we get justice for Stephon Clark,” said Jamier Sale. “Even after we get justice for Stephon Clark, there are so many other stolen lives that the Sacramento Police Department have to account for, that we’re going to be out here for a very long time.”
Protesters also gathered in the backyard of Stephon Clark’s grandparents, where Clark was shot and killed.
The march ended peacefully at 29th and Florin Road around 9:30 p.m.
