President Obama will meet on Monday with his Cabinet, civil rights leaders and law enforcement officials concerning the unrest in Ferguson, MO., the White House announced Sunday.

Discussion will include the  “administration’s review of federal programs that provide military-style equipment to law enforcement agencies” as well as “mistrust between law enforcement and communities of color,” according to an AP report.

The grand jury’s announcement last week that Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson would not face charges for shooting and killing a teen who attacked him during a police stop in August has sparked protests and riots around the country.
