Hannah Mothers Campaign takes its name and mission from The First Book of Samuel 1:1-28. Hannah shows the power of a prayerful life as she touched the heart of God to grant her the one thing she wanted more than anything…a child. God answered her prayer and allowed her to birth Samuel, one of the greatest prophets and leaders in ancient Israel.
We recognize that change can occur slowly and change can occur quickly. In the Gospel of Matthew, we read:
Where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I with them.
— Matthew 20:18, New International Version
Therefore, as the many members, supporter and friends of the campaign come together, we are counting on the miracle working power of Christ in the midst of injustice to bring healing, redemption and salvation. The campaign represents a united national spiritual force where time is collapsed and change happens accordingly.
Through unwavering faith, unmerited grace, and spiritual unity we hope to accomplish the following spiritual goals:
- To transform the day to day realities of Black, Brown men and boys to one that promotes, protects and empowers Black, Brown men and boys in all aspects of our society.
- To build a spiritual wall of grace around the lives of Black, Brown men and boys to ensure their emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being, so that they thrive and create from a space of collective-good-manifesting the very highest and best of their potential.

Civil Rights 2.0 will be guided by Jesus Christ’s commandment to “love one another, sustained by our faith in the goodness of humankind and propelled by the awesome power of love.”
Participants of all faiths, religious traditions and practices (or lack thereof) are encouraged to join Hannah Mothers Campaign. For those who do not regularly engage in intercessory prayer, please adapt the materials here as suited to your practice. No-Buy Fridays — and related efforts as those are suggested and developed — may speak to those who wish to support the campaign from a more secular approach.
