millennialau’s die-in and protests at the St. Louis Lambert International Airport on December 26, 2014. This was by far the most powerful action MAU has held. People cried. People were angry. Airport employees stopped and participated. People waiting in line for the security check point yelled “we’re with you!”

Ferguson is everywhere.

“When you return home tell everyone you’ve visited one of the most segregated, racially divided cities in America.”
