A devastated mother.  A grieving community.  An unimaginable loss.  A moment that became a movement.

Help us to ALWAYS remember Mario Woods— a young black man whose life was suddenly cut short on December 2, 2015 by five SFPD officers in an execution-style shooting documented in a viral video that spawned a movement:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADr7I8m0HNA

Help us to celebrate the life of Mario Woods on the anniversary of his birthday, July 22, 2018, by contributing to our annual Mario Woods Remembrance Day event.

In the wake of Mario’s execution, a groundswell of people came together to build a movement in support Gwen Woods and all of those who have been impacted by racialized police violence in the Bay Area. In January, 2016, the City and County of San Francisco declared July 22nd Mario Woods Remembrance Day and later that year we held the first ever celebration of Mario’s life.

Please help to ensure a beautiful 3rd Annual Mario Woods Remembrance Day. This is an inclusive, community based, family-friendly event.  Everyone is welcome to join us, Gwen Woods, and other mothers and family members of victims of police brutality on July 22nd.  The funds raised will go toward providing food and entertainment.  At last year's event we fed over 300 community members in the underserved Bayview community, where Mario was executed.  We had a kids' zone to allow area kids and families to enjoy the event.  This year, we intend to feed even more community members and have activities and entertainment for even more kids.  In addition, funds will go towards continuing our work towards building citizen awareness and support to the fight for #Justice4MarioWoods and justice for victims of police violence.

Your donation goes 100% to seeking justice for Mario and supporting his family and the affected community.  All of our members are volunteers who do this work out of the passion for justice in their hearts.

We have items available for specific sponsorship to make this year's event truly special and wonderful, especially for our youth attendees:
