my dog is named Lucky

ok so if anyone else wants to contact the governor of missouri (jay nixon) and demand he does something about the police brutality in ferguson i got some contact advice

you can email him here but it may not go through if his mail gets carded through by interns (which it mostly likely will, but the emails cant hurt)

his twitter is @GovJayNixon, the state twitter is @MoGov

this is his address

Office of Governor Jay Nixon
P.O. Box 720
Jefferson City, MO 65102
Phone: (573) 751-3222

To my knowledge, directly contacting politicians, even via email contact forms is much more effective than petition signing.  If you’re not from Missouri you can use the “this makes your state look bad” angle.  

It may also be helpful to send an email/letter to the federal department of Justice, which you can do here: http://www.justice.gov/contact-us.html 

Do other people have good contacts to add?  I feel like there’s a lot of unhelpful links (like change.org petitions)  out there but I feel like there are also more informed people with some good resources for who would be useful to contact. 

Local-level government officials are often very useful to target - especially those who control the purse strings. They’re more likely to respond in person than those who are higher-up.

if you know what’s going on in ferguson and you’re white

yungfeminist:

  • share all the material you can; share this article on how to make a tear gas mask or this post on the rundown of the situation in ferguson or this livestream link to the peaceful protests in ferguson
  • don’t you DARE make this about yourself or how you hate when people blame “all white people” for “the actions of a few corrupt cops”
  • this is not about you THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU DO YOU HEAR ME THIS IS NOT ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE
  • do you fucking understand me share all the shit you can to make noise about what’s going on but THIS IS NOT YOUR TIME TO GIVE SOME LENGTHY OPINION ABOUT HOW YOU HATE COPS WHEN YOUR LIFE IS NOT LITERALLY THREATENED BY OUR RACIST CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM EVERY DAY. THIS IS NOT YOUR TIME TO “SYMPATHIZE” WITH BLACK POCS ON HOW YOU LOVE TO JUST SAY “FUCK THE POLICE” TOO. THIS IS NOT SOME CUTE TREND.
  • THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH AND THIS IS ABOUT ANTI BLACK RACISM AND IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU. DO NOT SPEAK OVER ANYONE.
