Jewish community rallies outside Barclays for police reform

Members of the Jewish community rallied outside the Barclays Center Thursday calling for an end to police brutality as well as hatred against police.



The group Jews for Racial and Economic Justice chanted "Black Lives Matter" as it worked to spread its message. The group is calling for an end to what it calls systemic racism.



"The larger Jewish community is really coming out in solidarity with Jewish people of color and all people of color who face this systemic violence," said Mark Tseng Putterman, of the Jews for Racial and Economic Justice. 



The more than 200 protesters walked from the Barclays Center down Pacific Street to spread their message for change.
