Two days before the announcement of the decision of the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury, Evanstonians rallied at the Evanston police station, 1454 Elmwood Ave., in support of that community. About two dozen people stood at the police station between 4 and 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 22 carrying signs about the shooting of teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The flyer advertising the rally said, “In support of the Ferguson, Missouri, community, we will march for peace, justice and unity.”
Evanston organizations Coloured Network for Equality and Fairness and the Citizens Network for Protection organized the rally.
