We mourn the life of our sister Korryn Gaines, a 23 year old Baltimore mother who was assassinated by the Baltimore Police in front of her own children while sitting in her own apartment. Her small child was also shot and rushed to the hospital. She posted videos asking her son: Who’s outside our door … And what are they trying to do? To which her son replied “the police…trying to kill us.” This child had a sense of police violence and harm at the tender age of 5. How can Black mothers parent for liberation in a world that is killing us.
At Parenting for Liberation, we send love and healing to the family of Korryn Gaines, and we continue to fight for liberation in her name and the names of many other Black women and children impacted by state violence.
