Rally Against Police Brutality and Racism

Student Union
12:00pm

Michael Brown was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson on Sat, Aug 9, in Ferguson, MO. Brown's body was left in the street for hours following the shooting. His death and the Ferguson protests in response to it have caught the attention of the mainstream media, which has made a spectacle of the events.These issues are not isolated to inner city areas. Black and brown students, staff, and faculty encounter racist police action on our campuses and in our communities. We must raise our voices about this, too.

Please join us for a rally against racism and police brutality. This rally is one step toward a longer and deeper conversation on our campus this academic year that will be organized by various organizations and groups on campus. There will be a few speakers sharing experiences and activism around these issues followed by a march to the Whitmore Administration building and ending at the Fine Arts Center.
