OUR MISSION: Through education, public information and a network of parents and interested community members, Mothers will hep stop police harassment, brutality, excessive force and all acts of violence against children and adults. Because these actions are in violation of our children’s civil and human rights, and because African American males are more often targets of these acts, we will support the need for intensive training and accountability of all sworn offices of the law. We do this by providing the following services to the community:
24 hour hotline 206-329-2033: Trained volunteers receive complaints in the Puget Sound area and assist callers with composing their complaints. Mothers files complaints with the appropriate jurisdiction and alerts elected officials to the complaint.
Advocacy: Mothers advocates for laws and policies that enhance the dignity and security of the whole community and against laws that divide the community and scapegoat and victimize our young people.
Education: Mothers educates the community through newsletters, meetings, forums and community engagement. Mothers also provides workshops for young people focusing on their rights and responsibilities under the law and role playing their interactions with the police.
Organizing: Mothers partners with other organizations, such as the ACLU, to hold our police accountable and to reach the goals of improving constitutional policing.
Mothers Justice Show: Mothers sponsors a talk radio show every Monday from 2pm to 3pm on Alternative Talk Radio 1150AM. Mothers Justice Show works to increase dialogue in the community about police accountability, constitutional policing and justice.
