"We want people to know that, 'OK, we got stomped on, but we're not ready to give up,'" said Dorothy Kaiser, a volunteer at the "I Love Ferguson" store off South Florissant Road in Ferguson, Missouri.
Kaiser has been a part of the Ferguson community for nearly 80 years and has volunteered at the "I Love Ferguson" store since it opened in 2014. According to the late Brian Fletcher, former mayor of Ferguson and chairman of the committee that started the store, the "I Love Ferguson" campaigns started with yard signs.
