If you're new in town, welcome to Sacramento!
On behalf of MomsRising and our more than 120,000 members in California, I wanted to introduce you to our 2019 priorities in our state and ask that you commit to being a champion for policies that help California’s families to thrive.
MomsRising is an online and on-the-ground grassroots group with more than a million members nationwide, with a focus on ending discrimination against moms and women, and building a nation where all families can thrive. I’m excited to introduce you to our #MomsPowerPolicy agenda - because mom power is the best power!
Here in California, our mom power focuses heavily on increasing access to affordable, high quality early learning programs, like childcare and preschool, with hopes of building a sustainable system with an adequately compensated workforce that reflects the diversity of California’s families. We are also committed to policies that protect our state’s great diversity, and support our immigrant families, because we believe that #FamiliesBelongTogether. In order to succeed at school and in life, all kids, starting with our littlest learners, need access to affordable, healthy foods, and programs like WIC and CalFresh make this possible. And to be the best parents we can be, we also rely on policies like expanding paid family and medical leave, which Governor Newsom has committed to expanding.
These policies, and so many more, are what MomsRising stands for in California and beyond, and we hope you’ll join our mom power, and commit to supporting policies that help California families succeed.
