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.

    San Jose City Council vote on reach codes

    The afternoon of September 17th, the San Jose City Council will vote on whether or not to pass a strong "reach code" to create fossil-free buildings and accelerate the adoption of EV vehicles. Please join us to show our Councilmembers how many residents want San Jose to lead the way by adopting the strongest possible reach code. The time is approximate. Everyone who RSVPs will receive an email the day before confirming the estimated time of the vote. Hope you can join us!

    Chevron's Huge Kern County Spill Endangers Valley Residents

    California mothers are alarmed by an ongoing, uncontained oil spill in Kern County and are dismayed at the lack of independent oversight of California’s powerful oil and gas industry, as this powerful article quoting Linda conveys.

    “We have lost all faith in the ability of DOGGR to do its job of protecting Californians, and we call on the Governor to completely reform this corporate-captured agency,” said Linda Hutchins-Knowles, California Senior Organizer for Mothers Out Front. “Regulators should not be allowed to own stock in the very industry they’re supposed to regulate. As California faces serious water scarcity, we need increased protections for our aquifers, not weakened rules.”

    Along with over 500 public-interest groups in Last Chance Alliance, mothers and others call on Governor Newsom to protect California’s communities and climate by agreeing to:

    STOP new oil & gas permits,

    DROP existing production in a just and managed transition, and

    ROLL out science-based 2500’ buffer zones between drilling zones and sensitive sites like homes and schools. 

    Will you amplify our call? Sign our petition to Gov. Newsom to STOP, DROP & ROLL for public health and climate safety. Let’s demand real climate leadership! Thank you!
