          Wow! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we first connected on Facebook! This has been a bittersweet journey that started when Depelsha McGruder decided to create a space for her friends to share concerns and fears. During that time, it has also become a place for us to celebrate our Black boys! We’ve lost more Black boys and men at the hands of law enforcement and have also made great strides to #ProtectThem. One thing that we learned about ourselves along the way is that WE ARE WOKE!


          Kicking off with the Essence Festival, MOBB United will commemorate our 1st anniversary from June 30 - September 30. We’re starting off with a MOBB United booth at Essence Festival June 30 - July 2. If you happen to be there, join us!


           The theme for our anniversary is #WokeMom, and during that time, we’ll encourage moms to join us on the front lines by hosting Woke Mom Meetups in several cities across the country, including: Brooklyn, NY; Staten Island, NY; Nashville, TN; St. Louis, MO;  Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; Baton Rouge, LA; Philadelphia, PA; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; San Antonio, TX; San Diego, CA; and Los Angeles, CA.


          These Woke Mom Meetups will give new members, and soon-to-be members, a chance to learn more about how they can advocate on behalf of our sons and become voices of change.


          For our anniversary commemoration, we have launched a Woke Mom product line in the MOBB United store. These Woke Mom themed items will make a fashionable statement at any summer gathering and beyond!


          If you haven’t done it yet, now is the time to WAKE UP and join us on the front line by becoming a registered member of MOBB United!
