We Seek Justice for Michael Brown
We mourn the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed teen killed by a policeman in Ferguson, Missouri this week. No young person’s life should end under such tragic circumstances. Far too many youth in the United States and around the world grow up in fear and at risk of violence and harm from a society that does not give them the rights and respect they deserve. We all need to keep working for a culture and for policies that value young people, create opportunities for them, and make them part of the solution. Michael Brown and his family deserve justice. All young people deserve, and have the right to lead, safe and healthy lives.
