Do my membership dues go to my community team?

Right now, membership dues contribute to the general fund for Mothers Out Front, which is shared among the teams across the country. This means that the money can go where it’s needed and we don’t have some teams with much larger budgets than others. 

If I give membership dues, does that mean I don’t need to donate again for a year?

You don’t need to donate again for a year in order to maintain your membership. But we hope you will! Every dollar supports the fight for a livable climate for all children.
