About us

Mothering Justice is a statewide project 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.

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.

Join us in our current campaign, the MI Time to Care petition drive. Our goal is to ensure families that work have an opportunity to stay well.  No parent should have to choose between the job they need and the children they love. Sign up is simple and only takes a moment.
