PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Protesters gathered outside the Allegheny County Courthouse in response to the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis.
On Monday, about 200 demonstrators marched outside the building. It was organized by public defenders, part of the national Public Defenders Day.
Many of the protesters held up signs with the names of those who died due to police brutality.
The group also chanted, "No justice, no peace" and "I can't breathe."
The group said the death of Floyd is an example of injustices, whether they're within demonstrations or within the courts.
"It takes away, not all together, but it helps the frustration that the black community has been hearing and being subjected to for years," said Lena Bryan Henderson, a defense attorney and public defender.
