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? Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontre Hamilton. Dontre was a 31-year-old, unarmed black male, shot fourteen times for sleeping in a public park by Milwaukee Police Officer, Christopher Manney, on April 30th, 2014. This is her story... [see video]. Mothers voices is elevating and amplifying the matriarchs of the movement by exposing their truth after losing a child to the hands of another. These strong women are sharing their stories and the pain that is often covered by the spectacle of the headlines. These mothers have mourned but choose to share, hurt but choose to heal, have lost but choose to fight.
