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 event, our annual Mama’s March!  This is our action day to speak with our legislators and ask them to support our Mama’s Agenda! Mothers from all over the state travel to Lansing to have their voices heard on issues like infant/maternal mortality, mental health, domestic violence, leave policies and all the issues facing our families. After we discuss our community struggles, we share solutions and offer support at a predetermined location. From there, we march to the capital to interact with lawmakers directly. This is one of our biggest family-friendly events and little advocates-in-training are present alongside mamas. Registration is simple and only takes a moment.
