Eric & Alton

Two years ago Eric Garner was killed in an encounter with the police, wrestled to the ground, chocked to death. His crime: selling loose cigarettes.

A few days ago Alton Sterling was killed at the hands of the police, wrestled to the ground, face smashed into concrete and shot at close range. His crime: selling bootlegged CDs.

Our crime: an economic system that does not work for our citizens and our indifference.

  1. How can we work to fix our broken economic system?
  2. What can you do to change your indifference? What can you do to help others do the same?
