Michael Brown, Jr. was brutally murdered by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Each time a young Black man loses his life because of police brutally, Michael’s father, Michael Brown, Sr. relives the pain he suffered from his son’s untimely death.
Mr. Brown, Sr. decided to turn his “pain into purpose” and established The Michael Brown Foundation d/b/a Chosen for Change (CFC).
Chosen for Change focuses on providing support to other families who have lost loved ones due to police brutality or community violence. Brown, Sr. and the CFC mourns the unconscionable murders of Delrawn Small, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Alva Braziel and those individuals whose names we may never hear or know.
