Once a month Hands Up United (HUU) facilitates a Books and Breakfast for the community of Ferguson and surrounding St. Louis municipalities.  The goal of the program is to encourage an open dialogue with the residents while facilitating local engagement on social justice issues, political theory, and educational development.  

Our mission is to cultivate an environment that enhances the skills and experiences to actively fight local level issues that have an undeniable connection to our international partners in the fight for justice.  All of this and a healthy breakfast!

To date the program has served over 150 local residents, and has inspired Books and Breakfast initiatives in Newark, NJ; Little Rock, Arkansas; Oakland, California, and most recently added Trenton, NJ.
