Reclaiming Mother’s Day: UNITING OUR COMMUNITY TO PROTECT CHILDREN
Web-based Grassroots Movement Mobilizes Mothers* To Move From Concern To Action
Local organizers with Northwest Suburban Chicago Holistic Moms Network and Mothers Acting Up (MAU), a movement of mothers (*and others), passionately and publicly advocating on behalf of the world’s children, announce a Mother’s Day Reclamation Celebration to take place on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 11 from 1-3pm. Welcome to families and friends of all configurations, ages and stages. Bring lawn chairs, blankets, and your joyful spirits – come early, stay late!
Enjoy music by Solid-Aire, refreshments and children’s activities!
Reclaiming Mother’s Day events are inspired by the life, words and actions of Julia Ward Howe. In 1870 she wrote a Mother’s Day Proclamation and called for a day when the world would honor what mothers hold most dear: the lives of our children, of all children. The events celebrate the vision that Julia spoke of 100 years ago: mothers everywhere rising up together around that which unites us rather than divides us — our global family.
