Family members of Jacob Blake held a community gathering at the site of Blake's shooting in Kenosha on Tuesday as President Donald Trump visited the Wisconsin city.
The gathering aimed "to support and celebrate the Kenosha community," according to the family.
The event included a community clean-up, a food drive, a healing circle and a voter registration booth, organizers said.
“We don’t need more pain and division from a President set on advancing his campaign at the expense of our city,” Justin Blake, Jacob Blake's uncle, said in a statement. “We need justice and relief for our vibrant community.”
The event is a follow-up to a march and rally held on Saturday seeking justice for Blake and an end to systemic racism.
Tuesday's gathering was held at the corner of 40th Street and 28th Avenue, organizers said.
Trump visited Kenosha Tuesday after more than a week of unrest following Blake's shooting, but he did not plan on meeting with Blake's family.
At a press briefing Monday, the president said he talked to the family's pastor and decided not to meet with the family because "they wanted to have lawyers involved, and I thought that was inappropriate."
He called the family's pastor a "fine man" and added he may meet with the family in the future.
The president instead met with members of local law enforcement and surveyed damage following unrest and riots, according to the White House.
