The decriminalization and gun violence prevention movements have demonstrated the power of sharing our stories to build a powerful movement and win major political victories. One of the best ways to get to know someone is to know their story: where they come from and what led them to join the movement for human dignity and safer communities and families. Whether you have been directly impacted by the criminal justice system or gun violence, a long-time organizer in the movement, or someone who is just fed up, we want to hear your story!
You only need two things:
- Your story in any form: written, video, art piece, poetry.
- An image to go with that story, if not already in image form.
If you prefer that we only use first name, just let us know.

On April 10th the people of Los Angeles will come together to march for Trayvon Martin. On that day a grand jury convenes in FL to decide if charges should be brought against Trayvon's shooter, George Zimmerman. In addition to the march the millionhoodies of LA have drafted a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking for a Justice Department investigation into the case. Please take a few minutes to download, sign, and mail a copy to Eric Holder. You can also email it to AskDOJ@usdoj.gov. We must keep the pressure on until Trayvon's family receives justice.
