 About Mothers Out Front

Mothers Out Front builds our power as mothers to ensure a livable climate for all children. We are building a multi-racial, cross-class, intergenerational movement of mothers, grandmothers, and caregivers dedicated to convincing elected officials and business leaders to work for a swift, complete, and just transition away from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy. We know that mothers have an important role to play in the climate change movement, and when it comes to protecting their children, mothers are an unstoppable force for change. Our goal is simple: to enable mothers to take active leadership in climate change work by providing the structure, training, and tools for them to work together on campaigns in their communities and at the statewide level.

Mothers Out Front is a grassroots organization working to build a movement across race and class. We work with and draw leadership from the frontline communities who are experiencing the worst effects of fossil fuels and climate change with particular attention to low-income communities and communities of color.
