#HandsUp Walk Out event sees 500 community members make silent loop around campus

Around 500 members of the Washington University community participated in the #HandsUp Walkout event on Monday to honor Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager who was killed by a police officer two weeks ago in Ferguson, Mo. Attendees assembled at the Brookings Steps, where they stood for a moment of silence before walking in a procession, silently, around the Danforth campus.
