Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson posted a Twitter message saying he and other activists are slated to meet with Hillary Clinton Friday morning.

The meeting was confirmed by a Clinton campaign aide and will take place in DC. Clinton isn't the first legislator who has met with members of the movement. McKesson and other activists have met with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders over the last few weeks.

McKesson requested a meeting with the 2016 presidential hopeful via Twitter on Sept. 21.
