MAU Maven: Anne Ross Lyon.

I’ve been writing my members of Congress and telling them,
We, whose children are inheriting a world of pre-fashioned enemies, huge debt and un-kept promises to the world's children and mothers, have the opportunity to change that . . . MAU is not an organization with corporate structure, this is a movement – to make children central to the discussion of policy and politics and global concerns.”
I want to emphasize that the Mothers Acting Up movement expects a strong commitment to our children’s future from our elected officials. I tell them that I– with other mothers in America and around the world – am eager to work with our elected leaders to prioritize the lives of the world's children - our future leaders. P.s. I close my letters with a reminder that our children will be the ones picking good assisted care for us all one day!

Invisible Children.

Tens of thousands of children commute nightly in northern Uganda and an estimated 20-50,000 children have been abducted to fight as soldiers. We are demanding that our government help end the longest running war in Africa . . . Thank you for fighting for justice for people you may never meet, and knowing they deserve what you, and your own children would.
