#STAND! For A Day of Action
a project of
the truth, hope and justice initiative
Mothers and families affected by police violence will #STAND on Capitol Hill for A Day Of Action, May 10, 2018, the Thursday before Mothers' Day. Over 1,000 Mothers, family members, and allied organizations across the country will mobilize and congregate on Capitol Hill to promote police reform. This event is run and sponsored by the Truth, Hope, and Justice Initiative - please follow them on Facebook to stay informed! Register for the event via EventBrite. Allies are welcome and encouraged to STAND in solidarity.
Hope Rises Up is working with other allies to support our local NJ families who have been personally affected by this national epidemic travel to DC to attend this important event. You can make a tax-deductible donation to our NJ travel fund via You Caring, or checks may be mailed to: Hope Rises Up, PO Box 843, Pennington NJ, 08534. Please put #STAND Travel in the memo line. If we raise more money than is needed for NJ, we will use additional funds to help families nationwide.
If you would like to volunteer your time and effort to help in any way, please sign up with our allied partner, South Jersey Women for Progressive Change by filing out this form. Community partners are needed nationwide, so we encourage you to share this link with allies across the country.
Families in need of travel assistance, in NJ or nationally, should sign up here.
