Deray McKesson, one of the top activists in the informal "Black Lives Matter" movement, posted a Twitter message on Thursday morning saying he and other activists are meeting on Friday morning with Hillary Clinton.

A Clinton campaign aide confirmed that the meeting will take place Friday in DC.

McKesson and other activists have already met over the last few weeks with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

They have been seeking meetings with all of the candidates of both parties to push their idea of police reforms that they have dubbed "Campaign Zero," the idea being to end police killings of civilians.

On Sept. 21, McKesson had sent a Twitter message to Clinton asking for a meeting, and she had indicated she would have one.
