Clinton to Meet with Black Lives Matter

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will meet Friday with activists from the Black Lives Matter movement.

Deray McKesson, one of the top activists in the movement, confirmed the meeting on Twitter, and a Clinton campaign aide confirmed to NBC News that the meeting will take place Friday morning in Washington, D.C.

McKesson teamed up with other activists to release “Campaign Zero” in August, a policy agenda that stems from the Black Lives Matter movement. It seeks to end police violence nationwide.

In late September, McKesson reached out to Clinton asking for a meeting. She replied, “Let’s meet; we want to hear from anyone ready to address this urgent problem and work toward solutions. Our team will follow up.”
