7 Things You Can Do For Ferguson

You’ve heard about everything that is going on in Ferguson, MO. You probably want to do something about it, but if you don’t live in the area, you may feel like you don’t know what to do. Here are some options:

1. Attend A Local Vigil

There are peaceful vigils happening across the country (and internationally too).

2. Create A Piece of Art That Will Make A Difference

These performers created a powerful piece of art in Philadelphia that is taking over social media.

3. Sign A Petition

There is a link here , but there are many worth signing.

4. Raise Awareness

Yes, ALS is important, and, yes, the recent social media craze is raising lots of money for it, but there is far more attention going toward celebrities pouring ice water on their heads than there is towards what is happening in Missouri. If you are going to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge, consider also posting something about what is happening in Ferguson. The NAACP even makes it super easy for you to do.

5. Send A Note to Michael Brown’s Family

You can write something and send it through the NAACP.

7. Put An End to Problems Like These

Sure, this is not a feat you alone can perform, but you are significant. What you do does influence others. Pay attention to what you say and do. Here is a great article about what you can do, in general, in response to Michael Brown’s death.

At the very least, take a minute from your day to reflect on what you can do to make this world a little healthier. Peace, always.
