I was among those who engaged in peaceful protests in Ferguson following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. I also co-authored the petition to the United Nations for redress of grievances brought on by police brutality and racial profiling in America. I then accompanied Ferguson protesters and Mike Brown's family to Geneva, Switzerland to testify before the UN Committee Against Torture. I share brief reflections on the experience in this article.
