Welcome to the Mother Agenda.

Tie those aprons on tight, mamas. Roll up your sleeves. Turn up your pink collars, tune in to your moral compass. Kick up the high heels or the garden-soil crusted feet. Bring on the snacks to keep up the fortitude; there is work to be done.

In these dark times, there is also light, m'dears. Our job, as Joy Warriors, is to spread it liberally as we sparkle up the world and illuminate not just how by why we're broads on-board the magic baby bus: blogging, buying, baking, broadcasting, beautifying, breastfeeding, and banding together to bust out all across the land and over the seas in this magnificent mama led revolution.

We are moving from concern to action and aim to provide YOU with the tools to Sing it on out into the streets: Together, we represent the Mother Agenda -- peace and goodness and light and enough of all what's needed for ALL our children. We are standing up for the MDGs, calling for an end to war, for prioritizing the rights and welfare of the world's most precious and under-voiced citizens, whereEVER they live on earth.

We are Mothers Acting Up: a mother-led, mother-fed movement of mothers and others passionately and publicly advocating for the world's children.

Holler if you hear me, and stay tuned for news items from all of us at MAU, for simple and sustainable action that YOU can do at home and in your very own community, and for connection to the communities that are springing up across the country and elsewhere making for one BIG MAMA COMMUNITY.

Welcome to the Mother Agenda. We are so glad you are here.
