Phoenix Black Mothers Group Marches, Prays For End To Violence, Oppression

AZ Central – In honor of Mother’s Day, a group of black matriarchs joined together in Phoenix to raise their voices out of concern for the safety of their children.

Led by Janelle Wood, the group of about 30 friends and neighbors on Saturday morning marched west from Phoenix City Hall to the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza in an effort to spiritually dismantle systems that historically “oppress, depress and arrest the black community,” the group said.
