RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A march that organizers say is meant to protest against police brutality is underway in western South Dakota.

The Rapid City Journal (https://bit.ly/13lcAQ7 ) reports that the march began at a park in Rapid City. Some participants have cried out for an end to profiling against Native Americans.

Police Chief Karl Jegeris originally denied the permit for the rally citing safety concerns, but granted it Thursday after organizers agreed to change the location.

Cody Hall of Eagle Butte and Chase Iron Eyes of Bismarck organized the event. Hall has said the march is intended to draw attention to the need for improved race relations in Rapid City.

Hall says he expects about 200 people to take part in the rally.
