After Maria Hamilton’s son, Dontre, was shot 14 times by a Milwaukee Police Officer, she set out to make a difference for Mother’s who have experienced similar tragedy. In November of 2014, she organized the first Mother’s For Justice meeting with other mothers who have lost their loved ones to officer related deaths. In March of 2015 she took her cause to a national level by organizing the Million Mom’s March in Washington D.C. to raise awareness about their cases and demand widespread policy changes from the federal government.
