Raise your voice for Mike Brown and Eric Garner
This moment—sparked by the failure of grand juries in St. Louis and Staten Island to indict the police officers responsible for the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner—is historic.
Hundreds of thousands of people across the country are taking action at all levels—filling the streets with songs, chants, and solidarity; staging powerful “die-ins” and walkouts; and adding their names to calls for justice.
As local communities continue pushing for much-needed reforms to our criminal justice system—a system that puts communities of color at far greater risk of harassment and life-altering confrontations and ensuing consequences—MoveOn members are joining our friends at ColorOfChange to demand justice for Eric Garner and Mike Brown.
President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have the power to move forward much-needed reforms to end discriminatory police violence and prosecute Officer Darren Wilson and Officer Daniel Pantaleo.
It will take all of us to build the pressure necessary to spur federal action.
