On Monday evening, demonstrators organized by City Bloc disrupted the City Council meeting where Kevin Davis was confirmed as Police Commissioner of Baltimore, and then marched from City Hall to McKeldin Square. They demanded that Commissioner Kevin Davis and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blaker comply with their open letter on the rules of engagement in regards to peaceful protesters, that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake fire Paul Graziano from his post as Housing Commissioner of Baltimore City, and that she invest $20 million in community schools and grassroots organizations.

Marc Steiner Show producers Mark Gunnery and Stefanie Mavronis were there, and present sounds from the protest, including the voices of City Bloc organizer Makayla Gilliam-Price, activist and alum of the Intersection Dawnya Johnson, and Baltimore resident and Goucher student Arthur.
