March remembering George Floyd begins outside Barclays Center
Activists continued their calls to defund the New York Police Department on the first anniversary of George Floyd's death Tuesday.
A march was held Tuesday night beginning at Barclays Center and ending at Herbert Von King Park. Organizers say the goal is to memorialize people killed by police around the country.
They say they want money to be diverted from the NYPD and instead invested in their communities. Many people in the crowd held signs with names of people killed by the NYPD and other police departments around the country.
A rally outside the Brooklyn Museum will also be held Tuesday night.
