Initially, there were just two of us: Laure and Anaïs. Then there were about 40 of us, sitting in Laure’s living room, passing around a Kleenex box because we felt so helpless to protect our kids. We were angry and we were worried about the health consequences of climate change, and about keeping them safe in a world where droughts and fires happen every summer, and where billions of people could potentially be on the move because of food or water scarcity – and we were worried about their well-being too. Our kids know this is happening, and they’re scared.
But we’re the parents, and at school or anywhere else, when something is wrong, and the teachers or experts aren’t doing what’s needed to help our kids, we step in and demand action to fix the situation. So that’s what we decided to do.
We’re stepping in, and we demand to know what the government’s plan is to protect our kids, and we want to see it implemented.
And you know what? Not only do we feel like there’s hope, but our kids feel reassured knowing their moms are working on this.
So if this sounds like you, you aren’t alone. We now hear from mothers like us every single day, from across the whole country, saying they feel the same way. And together, rising up from coast to coast to coast, we will make sure things change.
Because no one can hold out long against an angry mom – let alone thousands of them. Especially if they’re putting our kids’ health, safety or well-being at risk.
