Celebrating International Women’s Day: “The Power of Story to Build a Movement” with Mothers Out Front

When: Sunday, March 8, 2020, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street • 2nd fl. • Boston

Members of Mothers Out Front will share their stories of how they moved from inaction to engagement as mothers passionate about making a livable world for our children. In between their stories, we will explore why a compelling personal story can be such a powerful tool for building a movement.

Mothers Out Front is a national grassroots movement of mothers, grandmothers, and others for a livable climate for our children. There are 20 community-based teams in Massachusetts, which have campaigned successfully for increased green sourced electricity, net-zero municipal buildings, electric school buses, and more. They are also working with allies to stop the construction of the fracked gas compressor station in Weymouth, and to introduce a bill to convert gas infrastructure to clean energy delivery systems.
