Michael Brown Shooting in Ferguson Inspires Vigils Across The Nation

Aug 15, 2014

Demonstrators gathered in peaceful gatherings in cities across the United States this week to protest the shooting of Michael Brown and the subsequent police reaction.

"The number of people, specifically young black men, that are being killed without a cause is rising every day," said a protester in New York City after dozens of police officers broke up a peaceful demonstration. "It's not ok. They need to stop doing this."

After a week of outrage, TIME presents photos from across the country.
