NATIONAL ACTION NETWOK(sp) (NAN) CHAPTERS TO MEET AT FEDERAL COURTHOUSES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHEN THE FERGUSON GRAND JURY DECISION IS ANNOUNCED
November 19, 2014 (New York, NY) — In anticipation of the impending grand jury decision in Ferguson, MO, National Action Network (NAN) Chapters are encouraging community members to join them when it is announced. Regardless of what the decision is, NAN chapters in over 20 cities around the country will gather. If the decision is to indict Officer Darren Wilson, they will focus on what would be a teaching moment on how to deal with national legislation for policing. Moving forward they would also focus on how they can prepare for the trial. If the Ferguson grand jury decision clears him of criminal charges then NAN will call for protests to remain peaceful and for the federal government to come in with a federal grand jury to move for civil rights charges on excessive force. NAN will continue to also call for federal intervention in cases such as Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY.
