Million Moms March
Organized by: Mothers For Justice United
EVENT DATE May 09, 2015
Mothers For Justice United is a Milwaukee based organization created to support the mothers and families that have been overlooked in deaths due to police brutality and vigilante violence. We are writing to see if you would consider a proposal to help support the Milwaukee mothers get to Washington DC, for the Million Moms March on May 9, 2015.
Our organization has worked to bring these mothers together and provide them with the support they need to effectively deal with the loss of their loved ones. Through spiritual counseling, mentoring, and open meetings, we provide safe and brave spaces for these mothers to connect, share their stories, experiences, and also process their pain. These avenues of connection and nurturing, have allowed these mothers to reconcile with their individual losses and use their pain to join in the collective fight against injustice. Our goal is to get these mothers to Washington DC, so they can encourage the federal government to intervene in these unjust killings, and put an end to this violence so their familiar pain never has to impact another mother across our country.
We can end police brutality and vigilante violence in our communities, and our participation in the Million Moms March, is the first step toward turning that goal into reality. It is our belief that the pursuit of these goals on a local and national level will create both strong and inclusive communities that provide opportunity, prosperity, and a high quality of life for all.
"My name is Maria Hamilton and I am Dontre Hamilton's mother. I am overwhelmed bearing the loss of my son to police brutality. I ask with a humble heart - Join us in Washington on Mother's Day as we take this fight directly to our elected officials. We need you." - Maria Hamilton, Founder of Mothers for Justice United
Mothers for Justice United is an organization of mothers whose unarmed children have been killed by police officers and white vigilantes. It is also comprised of concerned mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends, clergy, and other citizens nationwide who care about the loss of these valuable lives cut short unnecessarily. We are committed to halting the epidemic of the killing of unarmed people of color by police and white vigilantes in this country through direct action, legislation, and community building.
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. 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.
