Honoring Maud


Paving the way from
safe passage to safe space.

A mother, advocate, and business professional, Wanda Cooper Jones founded The Ahmaud Arbery Foundation to advance a movement of love, empathy, and equality in her son’s honor.

Her activism has led to the passing of Georgia’s hate crime legislation in 2020 and the repeal of Georgia’s citizen’s arrest law in 2021. By spreading her anti-hate message around the world, Cooper Jones serves as an inspiration of what is possible – even when it is hard.

Join us in making a tangible difference in the lives of Black boys by sponsoring safe spaces for them to run freely, empowering them to pursue their passions without fear or discrimination.
