On Saturday, August 9, 2014 Officer Darren Wilson shot Mike Brown, an unarmed, Black, 18-year-old with his hands up in a posture of surrender. Two weeks later, the officer has not been arrested and police have used excessive force and military weapons against peaceful protesters.
Monday, August 25, 2014 should have been Mike Brown's first day of college. Instead, it was the day of his funeral.
Youth in Ferguson called for a student walkout to honor Mike Brown and protest police violence and racial profiling. On Monday, August 25th, youth staged walkouts on campuses across the country. Commit to walking out for Mike Brown and create an event to invite others to join you.
