Following the tragic murder of her son Khaaliq Jabbar Johnson in 2001, Dorothy Johnson-Speight, MHS, LPC, founded Mothers in Charge, Inc. (MIC) along with other grieving mothers who had lost sons or daughters to violent crime.
MIC is a grassroots organization whose mission is violence prevention through education and proactive intervention with children, young adults, families and community organizations. The organization’s mission is realized through collaborative partnerships with the school districts, youth and faith-based community organizations, and governmental organizations, while providing grief support to families affected by violence.
As part of Dorothy’s vision and leadership, MIC Chapter affiliates have formed in Wilmington, DE, San Francisco, Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, Atlantic City, NJ, and Brooklyn, NY.
Join us May 12-14, 2014 in Philadelphia as we come together with Mothers in Charge to support and celebrate their important work on violence prevention!
