Speaking Up For Justice: It Isn’t Just About Michael Brown and Sister Jeanne Christiansen On Human Trafficking

Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner…….It’s About More Than One Man!

The internet is filled with video and stories of the Police physically abusing or even killing citizens for minor violations, perceived disrespect, or nothing at all. These actions have led to mostly peaceful demonstrations of outrage across the country. The peaceful demonstrations in Ferguson went on unabated from the day of the killing of Michael Brown up until today. Yet it is the violence that gets the most coverage and the strongest reaction.

Today on Jaws of Justice Radio we talk with local people who are conducting daily demonstrations to remind people of the injustices that continue and the need to change police practices and in some cases laws. Our guest will be Monica Medeiros, one of the Lincoln High School students that stood up in silent protest to Governor Jay Nixon’s action or inaction in Ferguson Missouri. We hope to have another organizer of the local demonstration as well to explain why they are out on the street every night and what you can do to get involved.

Join members of One Struggle KC as they conduct a Direct Action training to prepare for future actions. Whether you are an experienced protester looking to refresh or are a newly minted activist, this training will provide useful skills and knowledge to have when exercising your First Amendment rights.
