In response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of police, and amid a renewed focus on the underlying systematic inequalities impacting the lives of America's black and brown people, protests have erupted across the nation.
While many headlines have focused on demonstrations that became increasingly destructive later at night on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, daytime protests drawing thousands of people across the Bay Area have been largely peaceful.
In San Francisco on Sunday, hundreds marched and rode bicycles to the Embarcadero, through Union Square and to the Hall of Justice, eventually converging and returning to City Hall where they took a knee in solidarity and protest over the police killing of Floyd.
In Oakland, more than 5,000 vehicles lined up for miles, from the Port of Oakland to Lake Merritt. The cars rolled all the way into the horizon, in what was described by organizers Anti Police-Terror Project as a caravan for justice.
