In Norfolk, where the land is sinking while the sea level rises, regular flooding, higher tides, more intense storms

and saltwater infiltration are disrupting residents’ lives on a regular basis Mothers Out Front organizer Kim Sudderth launched our first Virginia community team there in March 2016. The diverse team brings together mothers who are scientists, stay-at-home parents and community activists working side by side on two local campaigns:

  • Safe Crossings aims to create safe routes to school for children living in areas that frequently flood
  • Signatures from our cities to join the Global Covenant of Mayors to start taking action against climate change and moving to a low carbon society
