    My why is a result of my unwavering and increasing fear, frustration, and anger of being a mother, daughter, significant other, sister, aunt, and cousin to black boys and men in this country who are mistreated by law enforcement and/or perceived to be criminals by others solely based on the color of their skin.

    In 2016 I found myself fighting alone. My son was nine years old and facing health challenges when he had his first police contact in his elementary school. I felt helpless as I saw the fear in my son's eyes. In his life there was so much I could not control, and now I could not control how the school was hurting him. I was in the middle of fighting, trying to preserve the hope in my son's eyes, the joy he once had when I was added to a group of women who were screaming the same thing. MOBB United gave me a place to turn my outrage into action and I felt less alone.

    I have watched this world incrementally dim the light from my son's eyes. Trying to restore the glow and remind him of his greatness is why I am still here.

    My two sons deserve to thrive, receive grace, love, peace, joy, and to have a future free of harm!

    While living in Los Angeles I began marching with BLM, and fighting for justice.  At the same time, I was editor of a news outlet where I learned about the "system" of incarceration.  So I helped garner visibility of unfair cases online.  To this day, my passion for the safety and well-being of our boys and young men continues.

    The short answer is - Because I don't want my son to have to give his children and grandchildren 'The TALK'. 

    The longer answer is that this organization is special. The work we do is vital and hard... filled with vicarious grief. The women MOBB United has attracted as leaders and volunteers are skilled, passionate, caring, and deeply committed to our mission. The sisterhood, friendships, and community of support we've created since we came together in 2016 is unlike anything I've experienced before. It sustains me in the work, and I am proud to be part of this group.

    Being a mom of black sons gives me no option but to live in integrity,authenticity and with an intentionality that other moms might not understand. My sons will always know that no matter how old they are, their mom shows up for and honors their life, their talents, their character, their humanity and existence, which upholds our legacy as a family.

    I've been a lifetime member of MOBBUnited since July, 2016. As a Mom of 2 plus a bonus son, all young adults now, I am especially aware of the struggle to advocate for them on a daily basis. I know for sure that my sonshines' light has been affected by the weight of "living while Black" in America. They have attended too many funerals and not enough weddings. I've had to deal with school officials, athletic coaches and other parents showing implicit bias.  Through my work with MOBB United, I can convert my frustration with a broken system to help change the perception of our Black boys and men. I love developing ideas and  creative campaigns with intentional imagery using faces and voices that get our follower's attention.  I can also participate in action-oriented steps like rallies, special events and voter registration campaigns that allow me to do more than post a quote about a trending hashtag on social media. With the 501 c3 and c4 working together, we continue to push the narrative in a positive direction, one accomplishment at a time.

    My sons are beautiful, kind, smart, passionate, and all boy!!! My desire to protect them from all
    things BAD is not possible. What I can change is how they are seen, heard, and respected. That
    is why MOBB United is an organization that is imperative for the future of our black men in the
    country and quite frankly all over the world. Protecting them is my job and I am proud to be a
    part of changing the narrative around our precious black boys and men.

    My “why” for being a part of MU is so that I can play any part I can in creating a more peaceful world for my Black sons and all of our Black and Brown children. My life’s intention is to advance authentic joy in the world, and to do this, we must have peace, stability, and a world free of bias, discrimination, and hate – often directed at our Black sons.  I will do anything I can to stem the tide of anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders among our children  – often because of the systemic racism and intergenerational trauma that has existed for centuries – and I’m proud to be a part of the MU board that is working so hard on these issues.

    Feeling helpless is stifling. Seeing countless murders being replayed and shared over and over and over again, is traumatizing. I am mother of three Black sons. I wanted to do SOMETHING. I must do something. I joined MOBB United literally on day one.
