The Mothers Of The Kidnapped are fighting to free their children, and all survivors of Chicago police torture and frame-ups.

This  work includes both pressuring elected officials to release our loved ones,advocating for humane treatment while they are locked up in IDOC prisons, advocating with them in court and within the criminal justice system at large, pressuring the courts through protest and public protest, and working with prison justice and abolitionist movements across Chicagoland to free them all!  We bring a feminist reproductive justice approach to the struggle to free police violence survivors that insists that mothers and caregivers and their incarcerated loved ones are both survivors of the carceral system. This is why when movements demand, “Free them all!” Mothers Of The Kidnapped also shout, “Free us all!” 

Follow our socials to learn about developments related to MOK’s children’s cases. They need your support. Pack the courtroom on their court dates, donate to support their legal fees, and make phone calls, per our ongoing calls to action.
