|Keep Hope Alive on National Missing Children's Day|
On the morning of May 25, 1979, 6-year-old Etan Patz was allowed to walk to school by himself for the first time. He left the apartment at 8 a.m. wearing a blue corduroy jacket, blue pants, and carrying a bag imprinted with elephants.
Etan never came home.
May 25th, the anniversary of Etan Patz's disappearance, has now taken on special significance as National Missing Children's Day.
For today's Daily Action, pledge your support for children: I want to support the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children as they work to help ensure every child has the safe childhood they deserve.

|Santa Barbara Pipeline Spill: Time for Tough Rules|
This past week, a pipeline broke off the coast of Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara pipeline spill is a tragedy, as once-pristine beaches are blanketed with thick, black oil. This spill is showing once more how slow and inadequate cleanup methods are, and how the pipeline industry is incapable of quickly responding to the failure of their own infrastructure.
For today's Secondary Action, sign the petition urging the Department of Transportion, and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to speed the development of new pipeline safety regulations to help stop disasters like these!
