Hey, I found something cool. I just wanted to let you know about an empowering Facebook page for Moms that caught my eye. It’s for the group Moms Rising. Here’s a quote from the mission statement of Moms Rising:
“Where moms and people who love them go to change the world! Together we can build a nation where children, parents, and businesses thrive; and end discrimination against mothers. http://www.momsrising.org/
These are the core issues that are at the base of our grassroots movement.
M – Maternity/Paternity Leave
O – Open Flexible Work
T – Toxics (environmental health)
H – Health care for All Kids
E – Excellent Childcare
R – Realistic and Fair Wages
S- Sick Days, Paid
We also welcome discussion on issues concerning the well-being of kids and families, family economic security and discrimination against women and mothers.
MomsRising is working to bring together millions of people who share a common concern about the need to build a more family-friendly America. MomsRising’s one million members share a common concern about families, the future of our country, and equality for women.”
