White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett and other Obama administration officials spent Wednesday evening meeting with several #BlackLivesMatter activists, including Brittney Packnett and DeRay McKesson.

According to Buzzfeed, the discussion centered on “law enforcement and community policing with an emphasis on how to increase public safety,” with Jarrett emphasizing, “the implementation of its recommendations from the 21st Century Task Force on Policing as a priority for reducing violence.”

This was Packnett’s seventh visit to the White House, Breitbart claims. She was among the group of Ferguson protestors invited to meet with President Obama back in December 2014, and has previously referred to herself as the “bridge” between activists and the White House.
