Floyd, a Black man, was killed by a Minneapolis police officer who knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes after officer received reports of a counterfeit $20 bill being used at a nearby gas station.

The organization, which has called for defunding of the police department, will be one of many voices at a town hall planned on Tuesday.

The town hall is supposed to cover policing and the recent protests and it will be attended by San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.

The Autonomous Brown Berets de San Anto are not a participant of the town hall but some of their questions will be heard during Tuesday’s town hall on race and policing.
