On August 14, 2014, citizens across America will gather in solidarity to hold vigils and observe a moment of silence to honor victims of Police Brutality
Police Brutality in the United States continues to be a pervasive problem that affects communities across the country. In recent years, we have had news of too many people losing their lives as a result of police brutality. We have also heard too many stories of people being sexually and otherwise physically assaulted by police.
We are gathering together to observe a National Moment of Silence to pay respect to the lives lost and/or forever changed by the brutality of the police state.
Too many citizens have suffered. Their families and friends need our positive energy and support in this moment of anger, frustration, fear, and helplessness.
How social media helped facilitate a national moment of silence to honor victims of police brutality, show solidarity with their families, and allow communities to come together in a moment of mourning and support.
More cities are being added, check here for updates and info on starting a vigil in your city.
nothing but love and respect for the people of gaza they’re in the middle of a genocide and they’re trying to help the people in Ferguson protect themselves against tear gas

Getting me to Ferguson
The last moments of Michael Brown’s life were filled with shock, fear and terror, says a witness who stood just feet away as a police officer shot and killed the unarmed teen.
“I saw the barrel of the gun pointed at my friend,” said Dorian Johnson, 22. “Then I saw the fire come out of the barrel.”
Brown’s killing on Saturday afternoon has sparked protests and rioting in this small, hardscrabble suburb of St. Louis, where tensions continue to rise between the police and the largely black, mostly poor community. Brown’s shooting lifted the lid on a pot that had long been bubbling .
What I Need
The $800 goal
Would fund my transportation from NJ to St Louis, my lodging and meals while in St Louis. As well as printed materials to be distributed at rallies/protests.
To support the development of mass self-managed organizations in the community that can address the murder of Mike Brown.
To help create a sustainable movement that can address struggles of police brutality, racial profiling,housing,transportation, pollution, welfare rights, and the issues of the day.
Political ideas and strategies need to be informed by practical experience. This means that the political organization needs to bring together activists who are rooted in working class communities and their mass organizations and struggles. Through our active presence we can learn from others. Through our participation and organizing activity, and the influence of our ideas, we can build a social base to not only have DEMANDS MET but to CREATE REAL CHANGE.
We must defend Ferguson.
Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:
Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about this campaign by using the gofundme share tools!
Thank you for your support!
Never would I have imagined we’d reach this goal, and because of you all, we made it. I say we, because I am representing for all those you cannot physically go.
Please follow me on twitter / instagram @zellieimani as I will be posting constant updates once I arrive at St Louis.
Feel free to continue to share or encourage others to donate, every dime helps.
