CALL TO ACTION
In the wake of the recent unjust murders of Dontre Hamilton, Corey Stingley, Derek Williams, Brandon Johnson, Larry Jenkins, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and so many more at the hands of police officers and racist vigilantes, people in cities across the nation have risen up to demand Justice in their communities. For every individual killed, there is a mother who has suffered a loss greater than any one person should have to bear. We, the mothers of this movement, are calling on all concerned community members to join us in our fight. Together we unite to stand against police brutality and racial injustice and to demonstrate our love and determination to protect our children and our country. On May 9th, 2015, Mother's Day Weekend, the Mothers for Justice United will march on the US Department of Justice in our nation's capitol, Washington, DC. Will you stand with us?
If you know of any mothers in your own community who have lost loved ones to police brutality and racist violence and you think they may be interested in joining us on Mother's Day, please let us know. If you are a family member of someone who has been lost to police brutality or racist violence, please CLICK HERE to be involved in the Million Moms March.
We are working to raise funds and to secure transportation and housing for the moms to be able to make this trip. We are also in search of people to help us in our endeavor by organizing and spreading the word in your own communities. If you are interested in attending the march and/or getting involved, please CLICK HERE to fill out a brief survey of your skills and interests. (Don't forget to click on the green SUBMIT button at the bottom of the survey!)
