We are proud to stand alongside you, creating a better world for ourselves, our children, and future generations. Your dedication fuels our movement, and we couldn't be more grateful.

Thank you for being an essential part of the MomsRising community.

ACTION OF THE MONTH: Celebrate Pride by taking action for LGBTQ+ rights

For Pride Month, join MomsRising in urging Congress to take action on a set of bills that will help move the dial forward on strengthening, protecting, and codifying important civil and human rights for the LGBTQ+ community.


“Every lawmaker and politician should understand this: America’s moms oppose Dobbs and the abortion restrictions and bans it is allowing – and we won’t stop fighting until we prevail.” – MomsRising Executive Director Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner 

June 24 marked the first anniversary of the shameful U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade. The MomsRising community mobilized for a day of action in Washington, D.C. (alongside the Women’s March and other organizations) – as well as in Charlotte, NC (alongside Vice President Kamala Harris), fighting for reproductive freedom.

MomsRising New Hampshire team leaders MacKenzie Nicholson and Nancy Glynn brought 23 Granite Staters (including kids!) to our May Mother’s Day picnic on Capitol Hill.

With your support, the MomsRising New Hampshire community secured big wins for Granite State families, including a historic $60.5 million investment in childcare (including an additional $15 million for workforce recruitment and retention), full funding for the New Hampshire MOMnibus which provides increased access to maternal health coverage, and Medicaid expansion for 7 years, which will help thousands of state residents access health coverage.

When moms rise, moms win!


After struggling with inadequate paid leave and childcare closures after the birth of her second daughter, MomsRising Ohio member Melissa Lester urged Congress to enact family-friendly policies like the expanded Child Tax Credit during a U.S. Senate Finance Committee hearing on using the tax code to support families. Your generosity empowered Melissa’s voice!

“Our failure to adopt family-friendly policies hurts families and hurts our country. The Child Tax Credit expansion was a glimmer of hope. It made moms like me feel like maybe, just maybe, it’s possible for things to get better.” – MomsRising member Melissa Lester

The NRA’s interpretation of the Second Amendment is historically wrong, and its inaccurate interpretation has fed a gun violence epidemic that unfairly threatens and terrifies everyone, especially communities of color and other vulnerable groups.

How did we get here?

For National Gun Violence Awareness Month, our online Teach-In featured constitutional law professor Carl Bogus exploring ideas from his book Madison's Militia: The Hidden History of the Second Amendment together with legal scholar and activist Mary Anne Franks (pictured above). The event was moderated by Jeannette Rankin Foundation President Michele Ozumba. This informative and lively discussion drew an audience of more than 1,600, one of our largest online gatherings of the year!
