Thanks to MomsRising for selecting me to join a collection of health advocacy oriented moms in the first Good Food Force National Meeting.  In a few weeks, we will convene in Washington, D.C. for group work in the areas of childhood obesity, healthy school foods, junk food marketing to kids etc.   
Check out MomsRising at www.momsrising.org. From their site:

MomsRising is 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.

The organization takes 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, to 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.

Please join me in prayer for productive outcomes in this positive and needed work.  I’ll post details from the meeting and upcoming opportunities for action. Want change, let’s create it. 
The hand that rocks the cradle…
