An estimated 2,000 peaceful protesters set up this afternoon outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's official residence in Hancock Park. Led by Black Lives Matter-LA, speakers and demonstrators demanded justice for black people killed by police and a major funding reduction for LAPD.

The event was highly organized. Over 100 demonstrators sat down in front of a line of LAPD officers, making room for speakers in front of Garcetti’s house.
