Our Statement on the Grand Jury’s Decision in Ferguson
November 25, 2014
We are saddened but not surprised. We are angered but not deterred.
Yesterday, a grand jury chose not to indict Michael Brown's killer, Darren Wilson. Today, the quest for justice marches on. Michael Brown was the victim of police violence, and of a justice system that has failed families of color for too long.
To the family of Michael Brown, and to the thousands of our comrades organizing to build a movement for change in Ferguson and everywhere in this country: our heart breaks with you. All of us at Wellstone stand with you.
Join us in signing on to a petition, created by ColorOfChange, calling on the Department of Justice to press federal charges: http://act.colorofchange.org/sign/justicemikebrownforward/
