In spite of thousands of groups in the US and around the world talking about the climate crisis, the leadership of our country continues to disregard the problem. We must consider another approach.
A strategy that has not been tapped in the climate battle is the force of mothers leading a grassroots movement.
History has demonstrated that mother-led movements can be very powerful, bring people together and create social change. Examples of Mother-Led Movements »
Our strategy will feed from the strength we have as mothers, to implement change when it comes to protecting our children. We are working from the assumption that once mothers discover how climate change is affecting the development of their “cubs”, from the moment of conception, and how the changing climate affects the person their children will be in the future, they will become active.
The majority of mothers, and people to that effect, are not aware that the changes resulting from climate change are already affecting, day in and day out, their children’s intelligence, brain development, lung development, propensity to cancer, and even their genetic backbone, as climate change continues to degrade the environment they live in.
