Today's Call to Action: Call Four People

Today's call to action is simple. I'm asking that you call four people:

  • President Bush (yes, again)

  • Your U.S. senators

  • One close friend or family member

Tell President Bush and your senators:

Fire Brown Now! FEMA director Michael Brown waited until after Katrina hit to request workers to coordinate relief efforts. Then the agents had to be trained before they could go to help. Once they finally got on the ground, they failed to send help to whole parishes and counties. Brown continues to put press conferences and red tape before saving lives, and so he's got to go -- now!

For your senators, add this:

There will be time later to reshuffle the bureaucracy and have all the investigations you want. Right now there are still people who need help. Please tell President Bush to fire Brown now.

As for your close friend or relative, send them to this post and ask them to make the four calls as well. The thousands of people who visited this site in the last 24 hours could make one heck of a lot of calls. So keep those lines busy!

Find your senators' numbers here. As for the White House:

  • Comments: 202-456-1111

  • Switchboard: 202-456-1414

  • FAX: 202-456-2461

  • TTY/TDD: 202-456-6213

REVIEW: Brown Waited While New Orleans Drowned, Spin First, Save Lives Seven Days Later, Why Fire Brown? Why Now?

NOT JUST NEW ORLEANS: Murder by Bureaucracy in St. Bernard?, Bogalusa "Has Returned 'To the Stone Age'", FEMA Screws Slidell, "Our Citizens Feel a Breach of Trust"

If Brown is still working at FEMA tomorrow, check back for a new call to action.

I'm afraid the fact is that FEMA legally cannot act until requested to do by the governor of a state affected by a disaster, and Governor Blanco failed to do so. The slow response is *her* fault, not Brown's.
