Mothers Fighting for Justice and Crime Stoppers to launch anti-violence billboard campaign


MIAMI – Mothers Fighting for Justice, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss, Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces and State Representative Kionne McGhee will hold a press conference on Thursday, August 31, at 10 a.m. on US 1 south of Caribbean Boulevard, to unveil the “Enough is Enough!” Crime Stoppers anti-violence billboard campaign.

Founded by Romania Dukes, who lost her son De’Michael Charles Dukes to gun violence on July 21, 2014, Mothers Fighting for Justice was organized to help not only herself through the grieving process but to help others who have lost a child to gun violence.

Mothers Fighting for Justice advocates for improved communication with law enforcement and frequent updates on open cases.

This billboard campaign is made possible thanks to the coordinated effort of concerned citizens, community leaders and Clear Channel Outdoor, which will donate one bulletin to be displayed throughout South Miami-Dade County and several different digital billboards throughout Miami Dade County with faces of 10 children who have lost their lives.
