The panel, organized by PICO National Network, will also highlight the broader problems surrounding the U.S. justice system and a way forward for the grieving Ferguson community. Rev. Michael McBride, director of PICO’s Live Free Campaign, will moderate the panel. “While media and politicians like Gov. Nixon are focused on the threat of violent protests, looting and rioting, they are still not addressing the root of the problem – a broken justice and political system that systematically leaves communities of color devalued and disenfranchised,” McBride said. “Many communities of color have lived in a state of emergency for decades; they’ve been oppressed and hurting for decades. It’s long past time we start talking about the positive power of the young people in this community who are searching for a way forward for Ferguson, for justice and against the dehumanization of people of color."
