Both meetings are scheduled at Chuco's Justice Center, 1137 E. Redondo Blvd., Inglewood 90302 (2 blocks west of Crenshaw, one block north of Florence).

Media, outreach, education and security committees were set up and had break-out meetings, as well as a youth/student committee.

Participants also included several family members of people killed by cops in L.A..
