Get Your MomsRising BINGO Card!!

PLAY PRESIDENTIAL BINGO WITH US!  Break out the popcorn, gather 'round your young ins,' and turn on the TV!  We've made a great MomsRising Presidential Bingo card for you and yours to print & play while watching the candidates debate this week.

How does it work? As the candidates debate, use the MomsRising Presidential Bingo card to mark down one point each time they mention supporting economic security policies like: Healthcare, Paid Family Leave, and Childcare (Don't worry, all the words are on the card).  And, you get to give candidates bonus points if they mention special words like: Toxic Toys, Breastfeeding, and Mothers.  As the words fly, you'll fill in your card with points each time they mention one of the words on the card, and then when the debate is over you can add it all up to see who comes out as the real family-friendly candidates.

Click here to download & print your card today!
