Marches have ended with mass rallies at the Virginia Beach Town Center, Norfolk City Hall, Chesapeake City Hall, and other locations.

The peaceful demonstrations have displayed an assortment of signs calling for justice and police reform. More demonstrations are planned in the upcoming weeks in various Hampton Roads cities by coalitions of religious and civil rights organizations.
