Children | Communities | Climate
This Mother’s Day, Mothers Out Front will reclaim the day as one of action. Through our movement, mothers unite to protect children, communities and climate.
Starting at the People’s Climate March on April 29th through Mother’s Day, these actions are designed to support and elevate our work in communities and states around the nation, while collectively demonstrating our growing power.
Discover ways below to become involved with us over the next few weeks along with your local team or on your own.
MA Statewide Meeting, November 19, 2016
Mothers Out Front teams across the country are planning marches, house parties, social media and postcard campaigns to remind elected officials and other decision makers of the importance of a healthy environment today and a livable climate tomorrow for all children.

Now, more than ever our work at the local and state level is essential to work for the swift and just transition from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy sources.
Learn more about events happening in your area here. Keep checking as more are added.
Check with your local team to see if they are planning a postcard campaign. Start your own campaign, send a postcard to your elected official and let them know why a livable climate is important to you.

Digital Media is a key tool to help us amplify our message, increase pressure on decision makers and introduce us to new mothers across the country. It’s a way to participate even when you can’t be there in person. More importantly, it shows those who weren’t there what we are capable of doing.
Don't know much about social media? That's OK! We have recorded three webinars to help you get up to speed!

Sharing your Story
At Mothers Out Front, our stories show our strength. They create connections between climate change and how it impacts our children. They draw attention to our local actions. They attract more mothers to join us and believe that they can do this work too.
This Mother’s Day, we will collect the stories of our actions, events, and marches. As you plan your campaigns, please plan to capture and share your stories.
A story can be about anything in any format.
It can be about an event or an action. It can be about meeting someone through a 1:1. It can be about a giant action or one short, but meaningful phone call.
It can be a written blog under 200 words, a 90 second video or a photo slideshow, or a single photo with text.
The most important thing is that it showcases our work.
A story should ….
Have a beginning, a middle and an end
Be able to be understood by someone who was not there.
Encourage, inspire, and teach others how to do our work.
Here are some examples of how to share your story:
