For 64 days, our cry of, “Show me what democracy looks like!” has reverberated between buildings in St. Louis, Missouri as community members and clergy join with young people marching in bold, peaceful protest through the streets. Armed with nothing but conviction and cries for justice, we’ve continually faced brutality and arrests by police officers suited up in riot gear with guns and teargas in hand. And we chant: “This is what democracy looks like!”

“The difference between what we are doing and what we are capable of doing would solve most of the world’s problems.”– Mahatma Gandhi
