Send Black Moms NYC to the March on Washington DC

The world is in the midst of quite possibly the largest civil rights movement in US history . New York has been in the national spotlight  for decades for their sub-human treatment of Black and Brown people - Abner Lumia, Jamel Floyd,  Eric Garner,  Nicholas Heyward Jr., Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Kalief Browder... just a few of the national headline cases from NY.  Moms across the state of NY, the US and the world heard each of their cries...“Momma!” “Momma! I’m through,” and came together, outraged at the treatment of our children, our brothers and sisters, our neighbors and friends, our co-workers, our parishioners, OUR PEOPLE!

Now, Moms United for Black Lives New York  are taking our voices to Washington DC to advocate for our community and to build solidarity on behalf of the tri-state area during the upcoming August 28th March on DC.

Daily life as a Black mother living in NY is –in itself– an act of resistance. The ongoing fight for racial justice in and around NY is the fight for racial justice everywhere.  Activist moms are ready to further amplify the voices of their community to a national audience at the march on DC. Please donate today to help these Black Moms take this fight for Black Lives NY straight to DC’s doorstep.

Your support is critical to amplifying the ongoing work and voices of these Black activists who have been doing this work their entire lives. It’s also crucial to sustaining the pressure for systemic change and momentum for Black Lives Matter.  No justice. No peace.
