Tansy McNulty
Founder & CEO

I am a creative thinker who has helped solve incredibly complex business problems for major corporations — saving them time and money by accurately getting to the problem’s root cause and proposing creative solutions to ensure the eradication of the problem.

Once I touch it, it does not return.

I’ve turned my energy toward ending police brutality in America for three reasons: my husband and my two sons.

I am a creative problem solver, and america — we have a problem.

My husband is a decorated member of the United States Armed Forces whose favorite outfit happens to be a hoodie and sweatpants.

I’ll never forget a night out in NYC in early 2013 with my now husband, before we were married. We couldn’t find an entrance to the subway and my companion, with his brown skin and optimistic resolve, was about to knock on the window of an NYPD SUV parked nearby.

In my anxiety, nurtured by the faint heartbeat of hate that is constant in our history, I screamed at him hoping to stop him mid-knock. I could hardly believe that this Black man thought knocking on a police officer’s window at 9:30 pm in New York City was a good idea.

This was before Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Terance Crutcher, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and Laquon McDonald.

The unfortunate truth is that police violence is wreaking havoc on the health and well-being of Americans like me and my family. I refuse to live in constant fear or rage and I knew I had to do something to change the outlook for the future of my sons.

I’m organizing 1M4 to provide both community and financial support for potential victims of these crimes. Despite the important work they do, I never want to be a member of the “Mothers of the Movement” and hope none of my friends become members either. But, none of us know if our family or children will be victimized in this way, so we continue to fight.

I’m building the infrastructure now so that police brutality and abuse of power remain in our nation’s past and not our everyday norm.

I DO THIS WORK FOR MY THREE: DEDRIAN, DG, & MALACHI.

And for the sons, daughters, and partners of my Sorors, sisters, and friends. For Jamar Clark, Samuel Dubose, Dontre Hamilton, Akai Gurley, Keith Lamont Scott, Christian Taylor, and Ronnie Shumpert.

THERE IS WORK TO DO LADIES. LET’S GET IT DONE.
