A crowd of several hundred people kneeled together outside City Hall Monday to commemorate the life of George Floyd, who was killed last week by a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on his neck, and other black people killed by police.

Actor Jamie Foxx joined Mayor London Breed at the event, along with civic and faith leaders and Gwen Woods, mother of Mario Woods, who was killed by San Francisco Police in December 2015.
