Breaking Through embodies Moms Rising’s mission to take on the most critical issues facing women, mothers, and families by educating the public and mobilizing massive grassroots actions to:
- Bring the voices and real-world experiences of women and mothers straight to our local, state, and nation’s leaders;
- Amplify women’s voices and policy issues in the national dialogue & in the media across all platforms (from print to radio, blogs, social media, and more);
- Accelerate grassroots impact on Capitol Hill and at state capitols across the country;
- Hold corporations accountable for fair treatment of women and mothers & for ensuring the safety of their products.
MomsRising combines the best of American innovation and ingenuity. We are a transformative on-the-ground and online multicultural organization of more than a million members and over a hundred aligned organizations working to increase family economic security, to end discrimination against women and mothers, and to build a nation where both businesses and families can thrive.
Our MomsRising movement is powered by two separate organizations, MomsRising Together, a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, and MomsRising Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As a charity, the Education Fund is nonpartisan and does not support or oppose any candidate for elected public office.
