Families United is an organization supporting African American families that are experiencing social injustice and police brutality.
Born out of the collective cry across America for decades, we are establishing ourselves as the Voice of the Voiceless, giving families the opportunity to tell their stories and stand against the ongoing issue of racial injustice.
Jacob Blake, Sr (Father of Jacob Blake) and Bianca Austin (Aunt of Breonna Taylor) are picking up the mantle for the fight for social justice. Jacob Blake Sr. is the father of Jacob Blake Jr., who was shot in the back seven times after a police interaction on August 23, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which sparked protests around the country.
Bianca Austin is the Aunt of Breonna Taylor. She was senselessly killed after police in Louisville, Kentucky, forced their way into her home for an alleged drug investigation involving her boyfriend on March 13, 2020. Austin has called for common sense police reform in honor of her niece.
