On August 9, 2014, Mike Brown was murdered by police officer Darren Wilson. Mike Brown's death set off a national debate about the use of force in policing and way some communities – particularly low-income communities – are frequently the targets of violent, race-based treatment under the guise of law enforcement. The people took to the streets and one year later, resistance continues as communities stand up against racism and intolerance.
Come out and celebrate the life of Mike Brown and the 1 year anniversary of the Ferguson uprising.
When: 5:30 p.m. vigil, 6 p.m. march
