Maria Hamilton, the mother of Dontre Hamilton, founded Mothers for Justice United after her son was shot 14 times by a police officer and killed in April 2014. Hamilton will lead the Million Moms March in D.C. Saturday, May 9, along with other mothers who have lost their sons to police violence. They are taking their demands to the Justice Department.
