We take action
education |organizing | Social justice
Advocating for social justice, Empowering our communities to know they are the answer, and Promoting Black liberation since 2014.
TAMV started in 2014 after Autumn Perkins (We Need Justice Too) put a call out regarding homicides of black people getting solved in Pittsburgh. At the time Fawn Walker-Montgomery was on McKeesport City Council and Mae Herriott Hudson just lost her son. TAMV had meetings in McKeesport and noted that people were coming from throughout the Mon Valley”. Therefore, TAMV was created with co-founders Mae Herriott Hudson and Fawn Walker-Montgomery.
Representation! Those who suffer social injustices are on a lifelong journey to find liberation mentally, physically and spiritually. We are often riddled by stigmas and stereotypes, manipulated by systems and agendas which in turn silences our voice and power within. We exist to address these social injustices, reignite the voice of those marginalized, and influence our communities through organizing and education.

TAG’s overall purpose is to equip communities with the necessary knowledge to leverage local grassroots community organizing, to gain power & influence over decisions that directly affect them, thus creating sustainable change and increasing the conscious level of residents.
We empower and equip those experiencing social injustices through grassroots community organizing and skill building in order to solve current/future problems through education, community organizing and promoting Black Liberation.
We envision closing the gap for those who suffer social injustices so they can live in their truth without apology, limitation, stigma, or oppressive stereotypes or expectations.
