The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) stands in solidarity with the community of Ferguson in the wake of the grand jury’s failure to press charges against Ferguson County Police Officer, Darren Wilson. In the aftermath of the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, NDWA staff went to Ferguson for several weeks to provide support to the community efforts to bring accountability to Wilson and the Ferguson Police Department. Now, women and mothers of the organization are expressing their grief and messages of solidarity.
“My heart hurts for Leslie McSpadden. As a mother, I understand the daily fear of trying to protect your children from the police. How do I tell my sons that the very people that are supposed to protect you could hurt or kill you and will not be held accountable? Something is very wrong with that story,” said Lovette Kargbo Thompson, a member of NDWA’s Atlanta Chapter.
