All eyes are on the fight for justice for Michael Brown and the growing movement against the systematic targeting of black and brown communities across the country. The use of excessive force by law enforcement on black and brown youth is a product of racism, hyper criminalization, and mass incarceration in cities across the country. We all stand in solidarity as we demand for justice for Michael Brown, Eric Garner, John Crawford, and countless others black and brown people killed by law enforcement.
The loud call coming out of Ferguson, Missouri has become a national rally to action. There is a growing energy around the country to engage and support the fight in Ferguson and to build it out nationally. Below are ways that people can support the local struggle on the ground and help build the nation-wide call to action.
The NC A&T State University Alumni Association – Washington, DC Chapter, IMPACT and Ten Friends are standing up and supporting the Michael Brown, Jr. Memorial Fund. We believe that we must engaged not only here in the District of Columbia, but also be part of the national conversation about issues affecting our collective communities.
