Denver waits along with cities across the country in anticipation of the Missouri grand jury announcement deciding if white police officer Darren Wilson will face criminal charges in the shooting death of Mike Brown, an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson Missouri? If you are in the Denver metro area on the day of the announcement here are three things to do.
1.Meet at Shorter Community AME Church. No one knows when the grand jury announcement will be made. However, on the day of the announcement there will be a 6pm gathering of leaders, activists and community members at Shorter Community AME Church, 3100 Richard Allen Court, Denver 80207. The purpose of the gathering is to:
Seek divine guidance through prayer, fasting and the presentation of an organized, coordinated action plan for justice in Ferguson, Denver and nationwide.
Support and hear from new and emerging leaders with wide array of new voices as featured speakers and organizers.
Make financial contributions and collect requested items for those who have traveled and will be traveling to Ferguson Missouri. There will be an update from Denver activists in Ferguson and we will coordinate with those leaving for Ferguson.
Join other planned protests such as the one in Civic Center Park. Everyone is encouraged to bring signs, wear warm clothes etc.
