Yesterday, a St. Louis Grand Jury refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the brutal killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown. On August 9th, the nation was horrified to learn that Mike Brown, an unarmed Black teenager, was targeted and killed by police as he walked down the street with a friend.

Now, Mike Brown's killer may never be held accountable — unless President Barack Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder take action. The Department of Justice is investigating Mike Brown's death and has the power and responsibility to arrest and prosecute Officer Wilson under federal criminal charges. We need widespread public pressure to ensure our national leaders step in where Missouri's politicians have failed, and secure justice for Mike Brown immediately.

Join us in increasing pressure on President Obama and Attorney General Holder to hold Officer Wilson and MO law enforcement accountable, and to move forward systemic reforms to help end discriminatory police violence.
