|Woke Mom 2017|
On July 7, 2016, our founder, Depelsha McGruder, decided she could no longer stay “asleep” to the injustices waged against black boys and men. Since that day, for her and over 170,000 other concerned moms, the phrase, “stay woke”, has taken on a whole new meaning.
You are cordially invited to join us as we commemorate one year of building and bonding to create a sisterhood for the survival of our sons.
