1 Million Madly Motivated Moms (1M4) is a collective of Black women working to end police brutality by increasing accountability in police officer violence and supporting a pipeline of Black talent to legal, policymaking, and other criminal justice professions. Refusing to live in constant fear or rage, 1M4 set out to change the outlook for the future of their children and organized to provide both community and financial support for victims of these crimes. 

With a background in supply chain management, founder Tansy McNulty applies the same thinking to social justice, to end police violence by 2038 and reduce both the number of lives lost and the costs of wrongful death suits for taxpayers. In December 2020, 1M4 identified that severe mental illness is a factor in at least 25 percent of police violence deaths. In response, the women of 1M4 actively compiled information to help spread awareness of Mobile Crisis Units (MCU) and Co-Responders (COR). These services are trained to de-escalate such situations and properly assess individuals experiencing mental health crises. Find their guide to saving lives here.
