ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The nation is waiting for word from the grand jury in the Michael Brown shooting case. Local leaders are asking people to act peacefully when the decision is released. The FBI has nearly 100 additional agents in the area to help local law enforcement prepare for possible unrest. Protestors also rallying for peace.
Young people looking for a way to make a difference after the Michael Brown shooting gathered at Harris Stowe State University for a peace rally tonight.
They heard from other young people already involved in the community and talked about what they can do after the grand jury decision is made public.
Music and talk filled the gymnasium at the Emerson Performing Center on the Midtown campus. The effort was organized by the Young Citizens Council of St. Louis. It is a group of professionals hoping to give younger people the voice they want.
The people at the rally were encouraged to tackle something they can have an impact with. For example, a high school freshman intends to work against bullying at her school
