Several people gathered in Ferguson on Saturday at the site where Brown was killed. The 120-mile march to the state capitol will take seven days and was organized by the NAACP.

Organizers said the purpose is to call for new leadership in the Ferguson police department and for police reforms in the St. Louis suburb and throughout the U.S.

Each evening along the route, marchers will participate in what they call "teach-ins" and rallies. Organizers said people are welcome to join in as they please.
