This is a special Mother’s Day edition of #5Actions! We are looking forward to celebrating with all the moms and like-moms in our lives on Sunday and we hope you are too! But we all know that Mother’s Day is about more than brunches, flowers, and chocolates – it's a time we take to honor the moms and caregivers that lead our families, communities, and our nation every day.
So while you’re celebrating this weekend, please join us online in taking #5Actions (plus a couple postscripts!) in honor of moms. When you scroll down below, you’ll find actions and opportunities to be engaged, including a petition to support the many policies moms and families need, an ask to share a personal story about being a mom or in honor of a mom, some awesome gifting items and so much more!
BONUS: Check out the P.S. for a Mother’s Day video from MomsRising – you’re going to want your sound on for this one!

Who Will Save Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day isn’t dying—mothers are.
While others ignore the 40% spike in maternal mortality, we won’t look away. We are MomsRising, and we have a plan to save moms. By amplifying moms' voices, we’ll demand maternal justice everywhere—from the doctor’s office, to the workplace, to the halls of government.
When our solutions focus on the most impacted moms and tackle the problem from every angle, all moms rise.

To truly make moms and families happy, and to improve our lives and economy, every member of Congress must honor the work that moms, dads, daughters, sons, parents, and other caregivers do every day through: Support for Early Care and Education, Safety for Children and Families, Stronger Schools, and Healthier Children and Families.

STORIES WANTED! Will you share a story for Mother’s Day?
Can you believe it's already mid-May, and Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 14, only a few short days away? This Mother's Day, MomsRising is giving thanks for this community, and honoring the work that moms and caregivers do every single day. Mother's Day is a complex day that can evoke a range of emotions. While it is a time to honor and celebrate mothers, it can also be a difficult day for those who have lost their mothers or have complicated relationships with them. We understand that everyone's experience is unique, and we welcome and honor ALL your stories and feelings.
