"Dear Alan,
I believe in a future with no discriminatory police violence.A future where 12-year-old Black children can play safely in the park without being shot by law enforcement; A future where "Am I next?" doesn't haunt the minds of millions of Black youth and adults every day; A future where the justice system holds police who kill and harm Black communities fully and swiftly accountable.
But we'll have to work hard for this distant future. Tomorrow (12/13), thousands of people across the country will take part in a national day of resistance, demanding justice for Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and all those targeted by the systemic crisis of anti-Black policing. Our national leaders are paying more attention to police brutality than they have in years and its the power of our collective voices and civil unrest has gotten us here — and we must continue.
Join an action tomorrow to help increase pressure on President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to hold Darren Wilson, Officer Pantaleo and other officers who have killed and brutalized Black youth and adults fully accountable. We need a powerful show of people to match the crisis of our time. Find an event in your area using the links below and click on the posters to download a printable version.
And if you can't make it in person, please help strengthen the growing movement by sharing the Justice For Mike Brown and Justice for Eric Garner campaigns with your friends and family.
Although the vast majority of protests are peaceful, there is a real risk of police violence or arrest. In response to the growing movement for police accountability, law enforcement have militarized their tactics and are cracking down on people exercising their first amendment right to free speech. Before attending an action, make sure you know your rights and check out the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) on twitter and your local NLG chapter for a local hotline to report police violence or receive legal support if you are arrested.

We are in a historic time — amidst a growing new civil rights movement led by inspiring Black and brown youth demanding an end to institutional racism. And since the St. Louis Grand Jury and Staten Island Grand Jury refused to indict the officers who brutally killed Mike Brown and Eric Garner, that movement has only grown. Thousands across the country have taken to the streets to shut down highways, bridges, organize sit-ins and die-ins, all in the name of a better future. Tomorrow, we will come together as a nation, to stand up in a powerful show of love and democracy and move forward systemic change to end the insidious cycle of police violence and denied justice. We organize because Mike Brown's killer is free; Because Eric Garner's killer is free; Because those who we have lost to discriminatory police violence deserve justice:
  • Amadou Diallo, 23 years old, killed by police in 1999. Last words: "Mom I am going to college.”
  • Sean Bell, 23-years-old, killed by police the night before his wedding, last words: "I love you, too.”
  • Eric Garner, 43-years-old, killed by police 5 months ago, last words, "I can’t breathe.”
  • Mike Brown, 18-years-old, killed by police 4 months ago, last words “I don’t have a gun. Stop shooting.”
See you tomorrow,
Rashad Robinson"
