Respect Us, a multicultural collective, formed and protested every day after word spread that a police detective, Joshua Smith, hit a young African American man with his Florissant Police SUV, then beat him up. Protestors demanded that Smith be fired, arrested, and charged.
Last Sunday, Respect Us congregated for dinner and nourished their souls with inspirational music and words before returning to the streets to continue the fight for black and brown lives.
