May 2014 eNewsletter

In this issue: we celebrate the brilliance of Mamas and a BRAVE member talks about her journey to becoming a reproductive justice warrior.

On Sunday, we celebrate the resilience and courage, but most of all love, of Mamas. I’m excited to celebrate the collective power of Mamas Day as we partner with Strong Families to shift from a singular and possessive celebration to a collective celebration of all Mamas. As a mother myself, I know the importance of community support to help our families thrive. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating all Mamas this Sunday and knowing that together, our love and bravery is beyond measure.

Happy Mamas Day!
