Make a donation to support the work of CODEPINK in 2015!
December 17, 2014
Being a mother who lost her only son to a senseless act of betrayal and police violence, I know pain all too well. My son Clinton Allen is the first thing I think every morning when I open my eyes and he is the last thing I think of each night when I close my eyes.
But the delegation of mothers for police accountability that took Washington DC by storm last week has given me new hope. I am in awe of the CODEPINK team that worked so hard to bring together the delegation of mothers, and this holiday season I hope you will make a donation to help them continue their work in the coming year to demilitarize the police.
I know that we are on the right side of history, fighting back against police violence and brutality that are stealing our children daily. We are making our voices heard. It is time for the world to see the faces that police brutality leaves behind, the carnage of destroyed families and the stolen hopes of our children murdered by police.
CODEPINK’s level of commitment to this issue is astounding, and I am truly grateful for all their help lifting up the voices of mothers, including myself. Can you pitch in to help them continue their work in the struggle for police accountability? Every dollar helps.
This next year, 2015, is our opportunity to make real change. We can't let down our guard and we must link the issues of police brutality to militarization at home and abroad. That's where CODEPINK comes in with their new campaign, Communities Organize to Demilitarize Enforcement (CODE).
I look forward to working together in the new year. You are all my sisters and brothers in this struggle for justice and I am forever grateful to be part of the CODEPINK family.
Peace, solidarity, and love,
PS: The CODEPINK team would like for you to check out their year-end report!
