Every since the unfortunate deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner happened in the hands of law enforcement, powerful images have been emerging from all over the country to express the level of anger that is erupting in many communities.

Protests have taken place in NYC, LA, Denver, Chicago, Washington, and Boston. Protesters organize “die-ins,” stop traffic, and hold signs.
