I Run With Maud

This fundraiser was designed to assist Ahmaud's mother; Ms. Wanda Cooper-Jones and her immediate family with financial support during this extreme difficult time and in their struggle for justice for the murder of Ahmaud Marquez Arbery.  Ahmaud was my best friend so I want to do everything possible to bring honor to his name and make sure justice is served. ALL donations are going towards the fight for making sure justice is served and to ensure that Ahmaud's mother has the resources they will need.  Having to grieve and deal with getting justice, are already two major burdens.  The goal is to help lighten the load by eliminating the financial burden as much as possible. Please continue to share Ahmaud's story until justice is served for those responsible for his death. Any donations will be MORE than appreciated by Ahmaud's family.

On February 23, 2020, 25 year-old Ahmaud Arbery was chased and gunned down by Travis McMichael, son of retired Brunswick investigator Greg McMichael, under the father’s and son’s pretenses of witnessing a burglary in Satilla Shores of Glynn County.

There is no evidence of the alleged burglary. Furthermore, McMichael’s account of the deadly encounter with Arbery was not released until nearly 6 weeks following the shooting. Today and every day since Arbery’s death, both Travis and Greg McMichael walk freely.

McMichael’s questionable account of events and the police department’s poor communication efforts following Arbery’s death lead us to believe that Arbery was a victim of racial profiling. Furthermore, due to Greg McMichael’s previous involvement in county law enforcement, Arbery’s death is not being addressed as a homicide nor taken as seriously as it should be.

No one has the right to pursue, attack and kill an unarmed, non-threatening individual. Ahmaud’s voice will be heard.  

Please share HIS story!
