Protests against police brutality will continue in Chicago on Friday.
The group Assata's Daughters is organizing a march for 5:30 p.m. today.
"We are marching to show our support to the loved ones of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Rekia Boyd, and all black lives affected by state violence," the group said in a statement.
The march will begin at 51st Street and King Drive. As of Friday morning, the Facebook invite for the event noted that over 400 people plan to participate and 1,300 are interested in attending the action.
"The police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are part of a larger structure of antiblack state violence that all Black people, trans and cis, straight and queer, experience on a daily basis. This violence against our communities is not limited to police killings. The state depletes our communities of material resources and wreaks havoc on us through unfettered antiblack racism, homophobia, and genderbased violence," Fullamusu Bangura with Assata's Daughters said in a statement.
"It is imperative that we hold the state accountable for ALL the violence it inflicts against us," Bangura added. "Reclaiming resources for our communities is not a crime. Police accountability is not a hate crime. Black organizers in Chicago will not stand for continued state terror against our communities."
