As protestors, activists, and allies marched, shouted, and activated themselves for change on-the-ground, community members faced early challenges with staying connected in the various spaces they navigated beyond Ferguson. Connected for Justice filled a key gap by matching individuals to collaborators, groups, and organizations that committed to actualize actions and initiatives. Idea-creators connected with individuals seeking ways to help as Connected for Justice challenged participants to spark daily, immediate, short-term, and/or long-term commitments and responses to crises.
