In August 2014, Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. This incident led to a movement against police brutality, and represented on this Hands Up, Donít Shoot t-shirt, culminating after the Grand Jury did not indict Darren Wilson, the officer responsible for the shooting. There was a mass reaction all over the United States, especially in Ferguson, after the ruling that resulted in civil unrest specifically among African American citizens.
The movement reached the United States House of Representatives, where over 150 staffers walked out of senate in protest for Brown and his family, and posed doing the Hands Up, Donít Shoot gesture.
