MomsRising.org is an on-the-ground and online multicultural grassroots organization of more than a million people who are working to increase economic security for all moms, women, and families in the United States. Established in 2006, MomsRising and its volunteers are educating the nation, improving public policy, and working to change the national dialogue on issues that are critically important to America’s women, families, and economy. In addition to being a grassroots force, MomsRising is also a media outlet with a strong readership reach to over 3 million readers, over 3,000 bloggers, and a radio program. Our Spanish language website and blog, Mamásconpoder.org is also a vibrant forum.
Since our inception in 2006, MomsRising has worked to increase access to affordable, high-quality early learning opportunities, including pre-k and childcare. MomsRising plans to play a major role in the Invest in Us campaign both online and on-the-ground across the nation. We will educate our readers, volunteers, public leaders, and the American public about the importance of early learning, as well as engage our members in advancing early learning to boost our families and economy alike. MomsRising will provide grassroots support for the Invest in Us campaign by providing opportunities for mothers on the ground and online to engage in activities to support early learning in their communities and by utilizing our blog, weekly radio program, and social media networks to inform mothers about opportunities to participate in Invest in Us activities and to share information about promising practices in early learning.
