Local organizations including Black Lives Matter, Women For Equality and Sacramento Area Congregations Together have teamed up for eight days of protests seeking justice for Stephon Clark and Brandon Smith.
They kicked off Tuesday at the City Council and are planned at various meetings and locations through next Wednesday.
Organizers decided on eight days because that's the number of times Clark was shot by police in March.
Less than three months after Clark was killed by Sac PD, Brandon Smith died in police custody.
The 8 Days, 8 Shots campaign serves as a tool to keep the discussion about police use-of-force in the public eye.
