St. Louis Post-Dispatch, November 4, 2014

The parents of Ferguson police shooting victim Michael Brown are headed to Switzerland next week to speak at a United Nations human rights conference.

Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden are scheduled to address the 53rd Session of the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva on Nov. 12 and 13. A Saint Louis University law professor is helping to organize the trip and to solicit online donations for the couple’s travel expenses.


Family attorney Anthony Gray told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Brown’s parents plan to leave on Nov. 10.
