today's action Invite the Brown and Garner families to the State of the Union Address!

Every year, the President invites special guests to the State of the Union. Guests typically include national heroes, outstanding students, business leaders, and local politicians. This year, President Obama should invite the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, two of the many unarmed black Americans killed by police brutality in 2014.

Young black males are 21 times more likely to be shot by police than their white counterparts. Inviting the Garner and Brown families to attend the State of the Union would be a meaningful symbol of the march towards justice.

For today's daily action, urge President Obama to announce new steps to reduce police brutality in the State of the Union, and invite the Garner and Brown families to hear the announcement in person!

alternative action Don't Repeat BP's Failed Oil Disaster Response!

Recent studies show a massive, oily "bathtub ring" the size of Rhode Island on the Gulf's deep ocean floor. It's clear that the response to BP's Deepwater Horizon oil spill was poorly planned and ineffective.


For today's Secondary Action, call on the government to ensure that companies like BP can't just dump toxic chemicals on oil spill disasters and call it a day.
