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 in Louisiana, 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.
The organization mobilizes members through advocacy campaigns directed at state, local and federal lawmakers to support policies that improve the outcomes and perceptions of Black boys and men. We support policy changes that will ensure better protection of Black boys and men from unfair treatment. Examples include community policing and de-escalation training for police officers as well as more equitable processes for trials and sentencing.
M.O.B.B. United for Social Change, Inc. encourages moms of Black sons and supporters to demonstrate our collective power politically by voting for those who support our platform, and economically, by spending our dollars with businesses and entities who support our cause. By using a multi-faceted approach and partnering with organizations working toward the same goals, we can and we will make a difference!
