Mother’s Day March - Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is honoring gun violence victims and their families, and empowering American moms to demand that their rights as mothers shall not be infringed.

The campaign includes videos highlighting how gun violence has changed Mother’s Day for victims, as well as a Mother’s Bill of Rights, DIY paper flowers representing the eight American children shot and killed every day in America, and local gatherings on behalf of our chapters across the country.

Moms can participate by joining a Mother’s Day walk or by telling their elected officials they can have your Mother’s Day flowers because you want your rights honored.

Print the Mother’s Bill of Rights (English and Spanish), craft 8 paper flowers, and mail or hand-deliver the package to your Senators’ local district office.

MOTHER’S DAY WALKS are an opportunity to connect with other moms and to build community.  During the walk, carry eight paper flowers to honor the eight mothers who lose children to gun violence each day in America.  Each event will culminate in a quiet place while a mom reads the Mother’s Bill of Rights aloud. 

Take pictures, post them on Facebook, and share them with us through e mail
Tweet your images using the hashtag #momsrights and handle @momsdemand.
