The kNOw Presents Lessons From Ferguson

The kNOw Youth Media’s “Lessons From Ferguson” features an exclusive discussion with Ferguson organizers and Fresno community leaders. The show originally aired on Comcast channel 93 or AT&T channel 99 on Thursday, October 2 at 7 PM and is now available to stream below and on The kNOw’s YouTube channel.

Brittany Ferrell, of Millennial Activists United, joins the conversation via video call to shed light on the community issues at stake in Ferguson, from representation of people of color on the police force to the violent shut down of civil demonstrations. Rebecca A. Rangel, of Central California Criminal Justice Committee, and Bryson White, of Faith in Community, share their experiences with police-community relationships in Fresno. White also spent time in Ferguson, joining clergy from across the nation to support the efforts of Ferguson residents.
