Advocating for social justice, Empowering our communities to know they are the answer,  and Promoting Black liberation since 2014.

Our History

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.
