Upcoming Protests: Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, #BlackLivesMatter

Three unarmed African Americans, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Tamir Rice, were recently killed by white police officers. The slaying of these two men along with Tamir, a 12-year-old child, has stirred debate, protests and riots. A rallying cry is echoing across America. People are demanding that police departments nationwide are reformed. People are demanding that the grossly disproportionate police aggression toward the African American community comes to an end.

Protests following the Ferguson decision were reignited on Wednesday, Dec 3rd after a grand jury failed to indict the officer who killed Eric Garner with an illegal chokehold. The Garner grand jury decision came only one week after a grand jury in Missouri opted not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for slaying Michael Brown in Ferguson.

People are marching through the streets, from sea to shining sea, chanting, “Black Lives Matter,” “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” “No Justice, No Peace” and “I Can’t Breathe.” They are blocking commerce and traffic, engaging in “die-ins” and making their voices heard.

If you would like to join the movement, here is a list of upcoming protests and resources to help connect you with the cause.
