Rapid Response Alert - Bridgeport, CT

MOBB United for Social Change stands with the family of Jayson Negron and the Bridgeport community


Moms of Black Boys United for Social Change stands with the family of Jayson Negron and the Bridgeport community, who are seeking justice as they face the tragedy of another young life, Jayson Negron, taken too soon; killed when a Bridgeport police officer fired his or her weapon at a moving vehicle being driven by Jayson. We are demanding that the Bridgeport police department and the state police department respond swiftly and transparently to this tragedy.

Jayson was an unarmed 15-year old boy who was shot and killed by the Bridgeport Police. Jayson’s family and friends describe him as a happy young man with an infectious smile. He also loved music.

Moms of Black Boys United for Social Change demands a full transparent independent investigation regarding the shooting and subsequent killing of 15-year old Jayson Negron. We send our deepest condolences to the family of Jayson Negron. This tragedy has impacted those who knew and loved Jayson and the entire community of Bridgeport.


As MOBB United for Social Change, we demand the following:

  • reforms including implicit bias training and de-escalation training for all members of the Bridgeport police department;
  • an update on the status of the Bridgeport Police Commission including transparent selection/appointment, duties, and authorities of the commission;
  • the release of an initial report from the initial investigation, particularly any evidence substantiating the claim that the officer who claims to have been pinned by the vehicle sustained injuries consistent with the story.


Call To Action

Please call the city officials listed below and ask for:

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.
