These mothers’ stories and those of their loved ones are presented in this beautiful, full-color book with stunning photographs donated by Chris Crisman and written by a group of writers who also generously donated their time to this project.
Founded by Dorothy Johnson-Speight, the mission of Mothers In Charge is violence prevention, education and intervention for youth, young adults, families and community organizations. In addition, Mothers In Charge works with elected officials on legislation to support safe neighborhoods and communities for children and families and collaborates with community and faith based organizations.

Mothers In Charge will advocate for families affected by violence and provide counseling and grief support services for families when a loved one has been murdered. Mothers In Charge is comprised of impassioned mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters who are committed to working towards savings lives. Most of the members have experienced the horror of having a son or daughter or loved one murdered. Because of the death and the life of their loved one, each mother and member is committed to saving lives and preventing another mother from having to experience this terrible tragedy.

Each mother, sister, aunt, or grandmother brings a special gift to this organization and its mission. Their passion and drive comes from within because each one of these brave women has somehow found the strength to attempt to turn a personal tragedy into a medium for change. They realize that positive change cannot happen within communities without addressing the issue of senseless and random violence.

by purchasing this book
These mothers want you to learn the true stories
of the innocent people who are dying in our midst.
You may be moved to tears but these women will inspire you and
YOU will help to SAVE LIVES & BRING PEACE to our cities.

(If you doubt that change can come through your actions, think of that inspired mother who started MADD and changed our country’s attitude about drunk-driving; then think about the two mothers who won the Nobel Peace Prize for starting the Northern Ireland Peace Movement...to say “Yes, we can!” is not a platitude, it is a firm belief that we can be the change we wish to see.)

Some quotes about the book:
“I am so grateful to the courageous mothers and grandmothers profiled in this deeply moving book who chose to turn their private heartbreak into shared action and use their pain and anger to make a difference. They remind us what a powerful force women can be.”   —Marian Wright Edelman, President of The Children’s Defense Fund
“This treasury of mothers’ powerful stories—mothers in the City of Brotherly Love whose children were murdered—is their offering to us. To a society that has lost its way, it provides a moral compass which will lead us home…our way back to love.” —Susan L. Taylor, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, Essence magazine
“TV news tells us of a child’s murder on the streets...but the story doesn’t last very long and neither do our attention spans. But, in that moment, everyone watching feels the moment of pain, terror or anxiety—because we know about the fragility of life—but we try not to look at it. The story that doesn’t get told is the story we all need to hear. It’s a story of parents’ anguish and helplessness as they live through and with a nightmare. But it’s also a story of living one’s life despite the unthinkable. And more often than not, it’s a story of how one can use suffering to help others. It’s a story these parents need to tell and it’s a story we need to hear."—Dr. Dan Gottlieb, “Voices in the Family” on National Public Radio
