About M.O.B.B. United




Our Sons Deserve a Future.

Founded by Depelsha Thomas McGruder in July 2016, Moms of Black Boys United is a group of concerned mothers who aim to make a difference in policy and perception impacting how Black boys and men are treated by law enforcement. We represent every race, age, socioeconomic background, marital status and education level. What we share in common is that we all have Black sons whom we love dearly, which fills us with both pride and fear.

M.O.B.B. UNITED employs a 5 point approach to creating solutions:

1) Influence Policy 

2) Change Perception 

3) Demonstrate our Power 

4) Partner Strategically 

5) Promote Self-Care
