MOBB United for Social Change Demands President Trump Retract Statements Promoting Police Brutality
Background: M.O.B.B. United for Social Change calls on Congress to denounce president Trump's recent statements about roughing up persons in police custody and to demand that he retract those statements. President Trump encouraged behavior that is illegal, and which violates constitutional protections against police mistreatment. These remarks are reprehensible and dangerous. What we need from the president and his administration is encouragement and leadership to stamp out brutality and excessive force that can erode the relationship between officers and the people they police.

M.O.B.B. United for Social Change, Inc. is a nationwide coalition of moms who are dedicated to making the world a safer place for Black boys and men by eradicating harassment, brutality and unwarranted use of deadly force by law enforcement against our sons. The group was born out of frustration over the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile in Minnesota and numerous other innocent Black boys and men killed by police before and after them. It has grown into a mobilized force of moms determined to make a difference. We aim to influence both policy and perception that impact how Black boys and men are treated by law enforcement.
