California

Together, we can create a healthy climate today.

We are harnessing the power of mama-bear love to push dirty fossil fuels out of California one community at a time to protect our kids' health and future.

We have a short but real window of time to act. We have the knowledge, skills, and much of the technology we need to keep the Earth’s temperature from rising to catastrophic levels. Now we need action.


Join a Local Team!

Our movement is led by our local teams of dedicated volunteers (mothers, grandmothers and other caregivers), who determine their community's needs and choose their own goals. We empower them with training, coaching, and ideas to move their communities and states from dirty to clean energy.

Team members come together to learn, strategize, meet with elected and business leaders, testify at hearings, and plan and show up at rallies and other events. At the same time, they add to their team – and their power – by hosting house parties and engaging new people.

Our teams welcome volunteers at all levels - from those who feel called to join a local team to those who only have time to sign a petition or attend an event. Knowing that it will take everyone to create a sustainable future for all children, we each do what we can.

    South Bay Leaders Offer Interactive Art Build for Earth Day!

     

    The coronavirus shelter in place didn’t stop these women from celebrating Earth Day with the community! Mothers Out Front South Bay (Silicon Valley) team leader Susan Butler-Graham, assisted by Stephanie Morris, designed and presented a fun and interactive make-and-take workshop on making Earth Day prayer flags and face masks.

    The online Zoom event was attended by over a dozen parents and youth, who gathered common household materials and followed Susan’s step-by-step instructions, creating ready-to-hang prayer flag strings to display in their front yards or front doors. The idea is to rally support for climate activism and our Mothers Out Front campaigns during this time of social distancing, using our own public spaces.
