***This is the rescheduled date for the march that was initially planned for Saturday, May 9th.
In connection with the Million Moms March in Washington, D.C. that occurred this past weekend, Memphis will have a solidarity march for mothers, families, and supporters who have been affected by police brutality.
The Million Moms March was planned by Mothers For Justice United, a group that was founded by Maria Hamilton after the murder of her son, Dontre, by a Milwaukee police officer on April 30, 2014.
As Maria and others traveled to Washington, D.C. this past Mother's Day weekend to protest police brutally, we will rally together in Memphis and demand that BLACK LIVES MATTER! As part of the march, we will have a speak out and encourage those who have experienced racial profiling and police harassment, especially youth and Black women, to come and share their stories.
