National Moment of Silence #NMOS14

How social media helped facilitate a national moment of silence to honor victims of police brutality, show solidarity with their families, and allow communities to come together in a moment of mourning and support.


  1. I was asked to retweet and share information on a vigil happening in NYC Sunday night (8/10/2014)
  2. I shared the information, then expressed my thoughts about location, timing, etc.
  3. Then user @hurricaneliv asked about maybe something more organized, in NYC.
  4. Then I thought a bit bigger than NYC...
  5. Why?
  6. I reached out to an organization that I know does a lot of this work
  7. I have not yet received a response, as of 8/11/14 9:54am EST
