Help Us End Violence in Our Communities
_Sometimes when our kids are in trouble, we feel powerless.
As mothers, we have more influence, more power than we know.
--Janet Connors, MJE Board Member,
mother of homicide victim, Joel Turner
IT’S NOT OK
Violence is not acceptable in any child’s life. Together, we can create neighborhoods where playgrounds and parks are safe and sidewalks are no longer threatening. Empowered and engaged mothers are the key to ending violence.Mother to mother, family to family, block to block, we can change the story of our streets.
We share a common purpose to end violence and restore a sense of pride and hope to our communities. We stand in solidarity with those who have lost loved ones to violence, and those who share a vision of a world in which this violence is no longer normal or acceptable.
Our children’s lives are not being valued in the same way young lives are valued in other communities. The lives of our children matter and
we want to raise awareness.
--Pam Ogletree, MJE Board Member
Stand up to Violence
"It's Not OK!"
We as a people need to remind the nation that the lives of our children matter and it is important that the escalation of violence that threatens the life of our children be part of the national conversation. Read our letter to President Barack Obama.
