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.

    BIG WIN! Mothers and Others Help Preserve Nearly 1000 Acres of Coyote Valley - Forever!

    Mothers Out Front South Bay is celebrating another huge victory! Together with amazing allies in the Protect Coyote Valley campaign, we helped to convince the San Jose City Council to vote—unanimously –to protect a large chunk of Coyote Valley from development! At a special Council Meeting on November 6, Mayor Liccardo and the Councilmembers agreed to contribute $46 million in voter-approved Measure T bond funds for a joint land purchase agreement that will protect in perpetuity 937 acres of open space in North Coyote Valley that had long been zoned for industrial development.  

    Situated in the original territory of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, Coyote Valley is a largely agricultural and undeveloped area on the southern edge of San Jose. One of the last remaining large open spaces in the South Bay, it serves as a critical wildlife corridor between the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Diablo Range, a flood control for Coyote Creek which flows into downtown San Jose, a fresh water aquifer, and a huge carbon sink, absorbing CO2out of the atmosphere. It also contains over 215 species of birds, over 1000 acres of wetlands, and over 4000 acres of farmland. Yet in the City’s master plan, the area has long been slated for industrial and eventually residential development

    The new purchase agreement protects over half of North Coyote Valley, a historic win for local conservation groups, many of whom have been fighting to protect the Valley for decades.
