The meeting was confirmed by a Clinton campaign aide, and will take place in DC.
Clinton isn’t the first legislator who has met with members of the movement. McKesson and other activists have met with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders over the last few weeks.
McKesson requested a meeting with the 2016 presidential hopeful via Twitter on Sept. 21. She agreed via the social media platform.
“@deray: Let’s meet; we want to hear from anyone ready to address this urgent problem and work toward solutions,” she tweeted. “Our team will follow up.”
