They came out before the Vikings game to “Take a Knee.” The movement was started by former NFL player Colin Kaepernick to protest police violence and racist oppression in the U.S. Protesters were also honoring two-year anniversary of the death of Jamar Clarke, who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer.

Organizers say police violence has been a problem in Minnesota, resulting in several deaths.
