MOBB United for Social Change Demands President Trump Retract Statements Promoting Police Brutality


Background: M.O.B.B. United for Social Change calls on Congress to denounce president Trump's recent statements about roughing up persons in police custody and to demand that he retract those statements.   President Trump encouraged behavior that is illegal, and which violates constitutional protections against police mistreatment.  These remarks are reprehensible and dangerous.  What we need from the president and his administration is encouragement and leadership to stamp out brutality and excessive force that can erode the relationship between officers and the people they police.

Call your Congressional Representative NOW and let them know that you are a concerned mom who wants to protect her son. 





Here are talking points for a conversation with your representative:

  • My name is  _____________________  I'm calling from MOBB United for Social Change
    MOBB United has brought together over 177,000 concerned mothers who want to change the perceptions of black men and black boys and impact policies that negatively affect our sons - black boys and black men.
  • As a mom of _#_____  Black boy(s) growing up in America, I find the president's recent remarks to police officers extremely disturbing and dangerous. 
  • It threatens to exacerbate a growing problem of police brutality and racist practices carried out by the criminal justice system. 
  • This system disproportionately impacts black men and boys who are racially profiled by law enforcement.
  • Please contact the president and ask him to retract his statement



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.
