May shined brightly at MomsRising, especially with Mother’s Day in the spotlight!

Throughout the month, we showcased the incredible power of moms and advocated with our over a million members for a brighter future. From our Caregiver in Chief Award to President Biden at the White House, to our Mom Power Press Conference in the U.S. House, to the launch of our 2024 voter postcard program and beyond, your support made magical MOMentum possible.

Thanks to supporters like you, this movement has never been more vibrant, mobilized, or connected. Moms and people who love them are truly changing the world!

At MomsRising, Mother's Day in May is more than just a celebration of the incredible work of moms and other caregivers — it's a month-long opportunity to drive cultural and legislative change so the contributions and needs of moms are counted every day, not just Mother’s Day. This May, we honored and empowered moms and caregivers while advocating for policies that create a better future for all families – all thanks to supporters like you! 

What better place to start, than the White House! MomsRising Executive Director Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner presented a Caregiver in Chief Award for President Biden!

We also honored our superheroes in Congress at a Mother’s Day press conference with key U.S. House members — and reminded all members of Congress that moms want more than flowers for Mother’s Day. We want care policies that moms, families, and businesses need to thrive.

The conference featured MomsRising Executive Vice President Donna Norton and MomsRising members from across the country who shared their stories about the need for child care, paid family and medical leave, and investments in maternal health. We gave Democratic Women's Caucus members superhero capes and storybooks with the experiences of moms across the country who have struggled without a care infrastructure.

Moms want (and need!) more than flowers for Mother’s Day. So we changed the narrative. 

Here’s the lowdown. On Mother’s Day, MomsRising, and dozens of organizations we organized, pushed out content about the policy changes moms need under the hashtag #MomsPowerUS. We reached far more people than we expected: 

  • Authors: 21,200
  • Mentions: 31,200
  • Views: 3,690,000
  • Estimated Reach: 22,800,000
  • Estimated Impressions: 204,000,000

All told, #MomsPowerUS trended big time on Mother's Day, ranking #4 alongside the popular #MothersDay, #MothersDay2024, and #HappyMothersDay.


Your support has given us a tremendous jumpstart on the crucial 2024 presidential election! We're thrilled to announce the return of our wildly popular and incredibly effective MomsVote postcard campaign.

In recent years, MomsRising’s hand-written voter postcards have motivated tens of thousands of infrequent mom voters to cast their ballots in the 2018, 2020, and 2022 elections. With over 40,000 members volunteering to write these postcards, our community has made a significant impact!

Mom-to-mom, friend-to-friend, neighbor-to-neighbor, dedicated members like you are bringing mom voters to the polls. Thank you for your continued support and passion!
