About us

Through advocacy, leadership development, voter empowerment, and promoting family-friendly advocacy, Mothering Justice will  raise the voices of mothers  and help them become policy makers and shapers.  The overall goal of this organization is to empower a well-organized group of mothers that can engage fellow mothers and law makers around a variety of issues that affect working families.

Join us at our next annual, free event, our Mamas’ Summit. This occasion will be a day of education with issue experts and skill building opportunities. The facilitators will be addressing specific conflicts along with their personal experiences. Through discussions and group conversations we hope to educate, empower, and encourage women to take back their families, communities, and government!
