The tragic fatal shootings of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant, young unarmed black men, prompt difficult questions about racial profiling, social justice and accountability: Why are young black men seen as threats and why are they targeted? Why are police sometimes behind the trigger? Do black people’s lives seem less worthwhile through the media’s lens? What can we do to change this? When injustices occur, how can we protect our citizens’ civil rights and make sure law enforcement will respect the democratic right to peaceful protest? Join us for a community discussion to tackle these urgent questions with young activists from Ferguson, Missouri – including family friends of Michael Brown – and national civil rights advocates.
