Why a Mothers March? Because:

  • Mothers produce and care for the world’s people, while war & profit destroy us and our planet.
  • The contribution of mothers, grandmothers & other caregivers to survival is unrecognized, unpaid or low paid, whether we care for children, vets, older people, people with disabilities…
  • Resources go to weapons of war and banks instead of to caregivers, healthy food, decent housing, health care, education, pay equity, care of Mother Earth.
  • The Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) discounts mother & other family bonds, takes children unjustly and places them with strangers. But children who need this protection don’t get it.
  • Immigration laws tear children from their mothers.
  • Our children who are LGBTQ are persecuted & denied civil rights.
  • Mothers, daughters, sisters, wives are central to campaigns against criminalization and racial and economic profiling
  • We’re being robbed of benefits, services, wages that our work & taxes have paid for
  • Everywhere people are risking their lives to bring change – from Palestine to Egypt, Haiti to Mexico, the Philippines to Kenya …
