In the wake of Stephon Clark's death by police gunfire, Sacramento's Muslim and black communities are coming together to demand change.
Basim Elkarra, who is executive director of Sacramento's Council on American-Islamic Relations and also sits on the city's police review commission, helped organize a forum after Clark's death, which Elkarra said drew about 400 people. He says the community will continue to work with the NAACP, Sacramento ACT and other groups to push for neighborhood investment as well as police accountability.
"After this tragedy, a lot of community leaders and community members have been working together to try to address this, and how do we ensure that this never happens again? A lot of courageous conversations have been taking place throughout the city, and I believe we'll get there," he said.
