Mothers for Justice on AJ+

After her unarmed son, Dontre Hamilton, was shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer in 2014, Maria Hamilton formed Mothers for Justice to bring together women who have lost their children to police or vigilante violence. After months of organizing, the mothers took their demands to Washington, DC. Erik Ljung's latest film chronicles this story and is now live on Al Jazeera's AJ+ digital channel.

The film was edited by Michael Vollmann (The 414s: The Original Teenage HackersThe Jeffrey Dahmer Files) and additional photography was provided by Discourse members Joel Van Haren and Dan Peters
