Equipping the Next Generation of Mothers
About Mothering Justice
Mothering Justice is dedicated to returning decision-making power to the ones affected by these decisions the most. By empowering mothers to influence policy on behalf of themselves and their families, Mothering Justice hopes to change the future of families in Michigan for the better. For too long, mothers have been defined by others, but, as a group, they have been left out of the conversation.
Whether they are soccer moms, security moms, or stay-at-home moms, mothers act with one focus – what is best for their families. But, so often, women with children have to rely on others’ judgment on financial security issues. When women with children cannot advocate for solutions to the problems they care about, a vital voice is missing from the discussion.
Through advocacy, leadership development, voter empowerment, and promoting family-friendly advocacy, Mothering Justice will raise mothers’ voices and help them become policymakers and shapers.
The overall goal of this organization is to empower a well-organized group of mothers that can engage fellow mothers and lawmakers around a variety of issues that affect working families.
