handsupdontshoot.com launched in August 2014 to counter false narratives spread by law enforcement, the establishment, ‘movement leaders’ and the media. What started out as a website providing disseminating media descriptions of events in Ferguson has grown to include a broadcasting network, community news portal, urban think tank and social media platform… resources that provide the community a voice, means to mobilize and much needed critical, historical and political analysis of local, national and international events impacting our lives.
Ida B Wells said it best,
“The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them”
This is our light.
And this is how you can help make it brighter!
