The event began with activist DeRay Mckesson, State Sen. Catherine Pugh, Green Party candidate Joshua Harris, Chief of the Criminal Division for the Attorney General Elizabeth Embry, City Councilman Carl Stokes, and businessman David Warnock. About an hour in, Mckesson and Embry left. Then Warnock left and former mayor Sheila Dixon arrived. About two hours in, Harris and Stokes announced they had to leave and Dixon said she had time for two more questions. Fliers said that the event would end at 9 p.m., but it actually ended about an hour earlier.
