On Ferguson … From the Worcester NAACP


The Worcester NAACP wishes to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Michael Brown.  We join communities across our nation in voicing our disappointment that the grand jury declined to indict Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown.  Justifying the killing of an unarmed young black man by a trained law enforcement officer is not just a travesty, but is in direct opposition to law enforcement’s sole purpose, to protect and serve those in their charge.

The killing of Michael Brown, the actions of the Ferguson Police and the grand jury decision is evidence of the acceptance of an overaggressive policing culture in our communities of color.  The NAACP stands committed to continue the fight against racial profiling, police brutality and the militarization of local authorities.

Please join the Worcester NAACP as we unite as a community to protest the treatment of Michael Brown tonight, Tuesday, November 25 … behind City Hall, Worcester.
