Halloween is almost here! Your kids will be transforming into witches and warlocks and getting lots of tasty treats. Yet this spooky holiday is more than dressing up and eating handfuls of candy corn--your children will be interacting with their peers and others in your community.

Building a Safer and Healthier World for Our Families
Want to say goodbye to those ever increasing parental worries about toxic chemicals? So do we! We're sick and tired of reading report after report about dangers associated with the products we use everyday. MomsRising has joined a growing movement of workers, scientists, fertility experts, and advocates in supporting comprehensive reform for America's chemical policy. As part of the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families campaign, we're calling for updated chemical regulations so that chemicals are proven to be safe before they are out on the market and in the products our kids use every day. Join our Safer Chemicals Campaign today!
The Safe Chemicals Act of 2011
The Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA) grandfathered in 62,000 chemicals. Since then, the EPA has required testing of less than 1 percent of the chemicals in commerce! Our broken system leaves us exposed to countless toxic chemicals every day, chemicals that put our families at risk for cancer, learning disabilities, infertility, and more. We can't protect our kids and families from toxics without the help of federal legislation. To gain real MOMentum on this important issue, we need your help. Tell Congress that it's time to get serious about TSCA!
Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Campaign: MomsRising is a proud member of Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, a coalition that represents more than 11 million individuals and includes parents, health professionals, advocates for people with learning and developmental disabilities, reproductive health advocates, environmentalists and businesses from across the nation.

MomsBlogging on toxic free families
An Ice Wizard. That’s what my son wants to be for Halloween this year. And I’m glad. Homemade costumes are the most fun, and a quick internet search helped me see exactly which video game character he had in mind. Brown shirt, blue pants, blue fabric as a belt–it all seemed easy enough until we [...]
Take Action!Candidates are talking about it. The media are talking about it. And, of course, we are (and have been!) talking about it! Childcare now costs more than college. Yikes! The struggles most parents in America have finding quality, affordable childcare for their little ones is getting a lot of attention these days from the [...]
Have you ever experienced a time when you were wronged or mistreated and didn’t stand up for yourself? In my late twenties I worked at a large international biotech company as a communications specialist. My counterparts in our Paris office were impressed with my work and invited me to come work side by side for [...]
