My social media accounts have been rightfully saturated with events surrounding the killing of a black teenager Michael Brown by a Ferguson, MO police officer. The response to the killing has brought a number of social justice issues to the forefront. What is happening now in a place – much like any other city in the US – that has a long, strong and deep-running history of injustice toward the black and the poor has been a catalyst for many to pose the question of:
How do we leverage our experiences, expertise, and access to resources to address the issues impacting the black community?
Answer in your own way. Share the social justice issue important to you and what you think your (or our) contribution is and can be.
