The demonstrations were part of a national campaign to protest the police killings of Tanisha Anderson, Rekia Boyd, Aiyana Jones, Yvette Smith, along with numerous other females killed by police.
The national demonstrations came on the heels of a report released Wednesday by the African American Policy Forum titled Say Her Name: Resisting Police Brutality Against Black Women. The forum is dedicated to telling the stories of a number of black women who were victims of police brutality.

Protestors around the country held signs with the hashtag #SayHerName along with pictures and names of the numerous black women that have died as a result of police brutality.

Organizers felt compelled to put together the rallies to raise awareness about the victimization of black women at the hands of police after their deaths were seemingly overlooked by the media.
