Friends, your October MOMentum was a scream!

Thanks to the support of so many generous donors like you, participation in our Be a Voter, Raise a Voter MomsVote program was wickedly good, from over 14,500 volunteers handwriting and sending nearly a million postcards to remind people to vote, to registration drives, to reaching Latina voters through What’s App, and MUCH more. Moms are fired up to vote this year!

Read on for MomsVote and more of the boo-tiful MOMentum you made possible this month. We’re overflowing like a Halloween candy bowl with gratitude for your energy and support.

Let’s go!

Kerri and everyone at

ACTION OF THE MONTH: Congress must act before the end of the year to protect DACA recipients

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the program that ensures people who were brought to the U.S. as children can live and work in the communities where they grew up, is in grave peril. Tell your member of Congress to act before it’s too late!


Powered up by supporters like you, our groundbreaking “Be a Voter, Raise a Voter” MomsVote program kicked into high gear moving voters to the polls on (or before) Nov. 8th!

Kerri, see how powerful your gift is? When moms vote, moms win!
