MA - Mothers Raise Awareness of Trees Killed by Gas Leaks

VIDEO! IN THE NEWS: Mothers Out Front Jamaica Plain and Newton teams held events to call attention to "natural" gas leaks in their communities and the consequences of those leaks. It's helpful to remember that we pay for this leaked gas and it creates a health risk and increases our emissions (which cause climate change.)

NY - LTE: Safer energy generating techniques needed that won't harm health, environment:

Thank you, Johanna Fallert, Mother Out Front Poughkeepsie, NY, for speaking up:

“It’s a beautiful day in New York, but my son’s elementary school has to keep the kids indoors because of a local blowdown … toxic gases have been released nearby from a pipeline carrying fracked gas. The air isn’t safe for children to play outdoors."

 


NY - Croton Moms at the Annual Earth Day Fair

On Saturday, April 28th, #EarthDay2018 was celebrated at Croton's Annual Earth Day Fair in Vassallo Park.

Five moms from our local team tabled at this event.

Outreach Coordinator Megan Dyer set up a fun dress exchange which attracted lots of moms to our table. While the moms were "dress shopping", the children drew pictures of the Earth, depicting what they would like it to look like and what they would not like it to look like.

AL - More than 100 Rays of hope in Alabama

We, mothers and caregivers of Lee County Alabama, had an amazing day at Auburn CityFest 2018 where we introduced Mothers Out Front to the public for the very first time. We talked to visitors about our latest campaign, the Alabama Solar Initiative - where we're trying to make going solar more affordable for everyone by allowing third-party ownership of solar panels. More than 100 signatures were collected, helping us get closer to our goal to have 500 by Mother’s Day. It was inspiring and encouraging how many people absolutely supported our cause!
