“You don’t understand that Michael Brown does not want to be remembered for a riot. He wants to be remembered as the one that made America deal with how we’re going to police in the United States.”

- Rev. Al Sharpton today for Michael Brown’s national eulogy

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Hands Up United demonstration this afternoon in the VCU Compass. For those who could not make it or were not comfortable enough this time around, there will be another Hands Up, Don’t Shoot demonstration in the near future.


This afternoon, members of Slam Nahuatl and the Feminist Student Organisation gathered in the VCU Compass in protest against police brutality. Thank you to everyone who came out, got involved, and took part in the conversation.

Our first Open Mic of the season will be September 15th at 9PM in the Commons Underground. All are welcome to attend and participate. We will keep you updated as it gets closer!
