Stockton police say as long as participants remained peaceful, they can continue on the street.
There has been no violence and no arrests.
The participants include two busloads of demonstrators from Oakland and some Stockton families and friends of at least one individual, 16-year-old James Rivera Jr., who was fatally shot by Stockton police officers following a stolen car pursuit in 2010.
