Rapid Response Alert - Aurora, CO

MOBB United for Social Change Demands Justice for Elijah McClain


Last week, Elijah McClain should have turned 25. Moms of Black Boys United join together in solidarity to mourn this son-light extinguished too soon and demand justice. If it were not for the Aurora, CO Police, Elijah McClain would still be bringing light to this world.

In the same week that his mother should have been celebrating his life, an independent investigative report revealed that the Colorado police officers involved in her son's death did not have the legal basis to stop, frisk or restrain Elijah McClain. APD officers Nathan Woodyard, Randy Roedema, and Jason Rosenblatt robbed Elijah of the rest of his life by unfairly stopping and harassing him and ultimately ended his life by restraining him as he vomited and said he couldn't breathe, then allowed paramedics to inject a deadly dose of ketamine into his body. 18 months since his murder, there have been no consequences for the killers.

Elijah’s family and moms of Black boys across the country are not done fighting for justice. 


Call To Action

Moms of MOBB United are aggrieved and join in support to demand that:

  • APD must immediately fire officers Woodyard and Roedema who remain on the police force to this day.
  • AFD must fire the paramedics who administered no care to dying Elijah, only a massive dose of ketamine.
  • Attorney General Phil Weiser must file murder charges against officers Woodyard, Roedema, and Rosenblatt.
  • The Aurora district attorneys must drop the false charges against the peaceful protest leaders who brought light to Elijah’s case.

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 and others 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.
