More than 200 Loyola University Maryland students and employees gathered on the Quad on Dec. 10, 2014, for a “Hands Up For Justice” peaceful demonstration to engage in conversation about the events in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y., and other racial justice issues. After a moment of silence, students shared stories with the crowd and led a march through the heart of the Evergreen campus, chanting “No justice, no peace.” Campus ministry, the Center for Community Service and Justice, and ALANA services hosted a solidarity vigil for racial justice later in the day.
