We take on the most critical issues facing women, mothers, and families by educating the public and mobilizing massive grassroots actions to:
- Bring the voices and real world experiences of women and mothers straight to our local, state, and nation's leaders;
- Amplify women's voices and policy issues in the national dialogue & in the media across all platforms (from print, to radio, to blogs, social media, and more);
- Accelerate grassroots impact on Capitol Hill and at state capitols across the country;
- Hold corporations accountable for fair treatment of women and mothers & for ensuring the safety of their products.
In short, MomsRising.org is an on-the-ground and online grassroots organization of more than a million people who are working to achieve economic security for all moms, women, and families in the United States. MomsRising is working for paid family leave, earned sick days, affordable childcare, and for an end to the wage and hiring discrimination which penalizes so many mothers. MomsRising also advocates for better childhood nutrition, health care for all, toxic-free environments, breastfeeding rights so that all children can have a healthy start, and a national budget that reflects the contributions of women and moms. Established in 2006, MomsRising and its members are organizing and speaking out to improve public policy and to change the national dialogue on issues that are critically important to America’s women and families.
