Voices of Black Mothers
The trial for the former police officer charged in the death of George Floyd begins today. His death led to nationwide calls for police reform, accountability, and even demands to "defund the police." One emerging group made up of thousands of black mothers says getting rid of the police is not the answer for their communities. They call themselves Voices of Black Mothers United. They've all lost children to violence. Now they say they want to partner with police departments so that they can help make a real difference and build a relationship between the police and the community. CBN News White House correspondent Eric Philips recently spoke with the group's organizers. He's on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.
