today's action End the Failed War on Drugs

A vast majority of Americans know that the war on drugs isn't working. Yet every year, the U.S. spends more than $50 billion on the drug war, arresting more than 1.5 million people for a nonviolent drug law violation.

The injustice? The drug war has led to unprecedented levels of incarceration and the marginalization of tens of millions of Americans. And these laws disproportionately affect our youth, poor people, and Latino and African American communities. Despite the immense resources fueling the drug war, it has utterly failed to reduce problematic drug use and drug-related harms

The war on drugs is incarcerating more people than it is helping, but you can help us shift the focus of our country's drug policies from punishment to effective, humane solutions.

For today's Daily Action, stand with our friends at the Drug Policy Alliance to end the drug war and read three solutions for how society should deal with people who use drugs based on science, compassion, health and human rights.

alternative action Put An End To LGBT Discrimination

In countries throughout the world, it is criminal to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). We need strong government leaders who will join the global fight to stop this LGBT hate and discrimination.


For today's Secondary Action, tell U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry: let's be a global leader on LGBT issues.
