About MomsRising: MomsRising is where moms, and people who love them, go to change our world. This is our story. First, a handful of women came together, and then that handful became hundreds, the hundreds became thousands, and through friends telling friends, MomsRising is now over a million members (and growing!) strong. Every single one of us can have an impact. And together we are a powerful force. Along with our more than a hundred aligned organizations, MomsRising takes on the most critical issues for women, mothers, and families and mobilizes a massive grassroots movement. MomsRising is a transformative online and on-the-ground multicultural organization 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. MomsRising is also a new media outlet with over 700 bloggers and a combined estimated blogging and social media readership reach to over 3 million people. In both 2010 and 2011, Forbes.com named MomsRising’s website one of the “Top 100 Websites For Women.” www.momsrising.org
