We are a group of students representing universities throughout St. Louis. We are seeking justice for Mike Brown and other victims of racial profiling and police brutality. We will not stand for a society in which the people we pay to protect us act with unjust violence towards black people and other minorities. We join together as individuals deeply troubled by what we see in our communities, in the United States, and in the world.
We do not share common roots. We represent different student organizations. Our hometowns are not the same. We have different skin colors. What we do share is a mission to progress towards systematic changes in the political and economic systems that failed Mike Brown, the Ferguson community, and people of color everywhere. This is part of a greater struggle against the injustice and oppression people of color face in the United States and the world. As members of the St. Louis community, we act not only as students of our universities, but also as citizens of St. Louis.
We seek to support the demands of the local community as listed by organizations such as the Organization for Black Struggle, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, and others.
We stand in solidarity with the Ferguson community, and we will not back down.
