A group led by "Black Lives Matter" setting an agenda just ahead of a key anniversary.
FOX's Pat O'Neill has more:
Some 60 organizations are calling for reforms in policing and criminal justice. The coalition members, all affiliated with "Black Lives Matter", outline six demands and offer 40 recommendations.
The agenda calls for an end to any type of military police presence at protests, for example, and the release those convicted of minor drug and youth offenses.
The group says it wants to implement policies that value safety and humanity of black lives and a means to hold elected leaders accountable.
The statement comes just before the two-year anniversary, August 9, of the fatal shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, of black teen Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson, who was exonerated of any criminal wrongdoing sparking racial tensions and weeks of protests.
