Vigil

People across the country will participate in a peaceful protest against police brutality in response to Michael Brown‘s shooting death.

Starting at 7 p.m., vigils were held all over the United States as part of National Moment of Silence. This comes days after people began calling for a memorial via social media, using the hashtag #NMOS14.

Although the police happened in Ferguson, Missouri, where people have been demonstrating for days, community activist Feminista Jones, pointed out how police brutality is a national problem.

“It’s not just Ferguson. Police brutality is pervasive. It’s happening in so many cities,” she told USA Today. “We’re having a national moment of silence — one chord, one silent voice — to honor not only Mike Brown, not only Eric Garner, but all victims of police brutality, especially those who have lost their lives.”

People will be gathering in just about every major city in the U.S. tonight, including: Washington D.C., Baltimore, Boston, St. Louis, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Charlotte. New York City will be holding two vigils: one in Harlem and another in Lower Manhattan. These aren’t the only vigil sites, though, as many more cities will be participating in the national moment of silence.

Those that couldn’t make it out for the vigil have been able to show their support via social media, where moments from the rallies have been shared. Many people are lifting their arms in surrender, silently pleading, “Don’t shoot.”

Whether regular citizens or celebrities, thousands of people poured into public places to show their support for the movement.

Some socially conscious parents and care takers have also made sure to bring their children out to participate in the vigil. In Detroit, this little boy even held up a sign demanding, “Respect My Innocence.”

Meanwhile one Twitter user had to get “Community” star Donald Glover together over his opinion that Twitter activism is often ineffective.

These are just a few highlights, but check back for more as the night goes on.
