Virginia

Together, we can create a healthy climate today.

The world is starting to understand that we must act now to address climate change.

The current Administration:

  • Has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Is dismantling the Clean Power Plan.
  • Is doubling down on building new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Even though Virginia’s coastline and cities are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than anywhere else in the country besides New Orleans, it still lags far behind many other states in implementing progressive climate policies.

We have a short but real window of time to act. We have the knowledge, skills, and much of the technology we need to keep the Earth’s temperature from rising to catastrophic levels.


We're mothers working together to help mothers develop child-centered solutions around switching to clean energy and creating a livable climate.

Join a Local Team!

Our movement is led by our local teams of dedicated volunteers, who determine their community's needs and choose their own goals. We empower them with training, coaching, and ideas to move their communities and states from dirty to clean energy.

Team members come together to learn, strategize, meet with elected and business leaders, testify at hearings, and plan and show up at rallies and other events. At the same time, they add to their team – and their power – by hosting house parties and engaging new people.

Our teams welcome volunteers at all levels - from those who feel called to help build a local team to those who only have time to sign a petition or attend an event. Knowing that it will take everyone to create a sustainable future for all children, we all do what we can.

    Virginia Beach Friends Meeting House in Virginia Beach, VA

    Mothers Forum on Energy Choices

    Mothers Out Front-Hampton Roads very proud of the work we are doing in our region. Last summer, a group of us, our neighbors and friends were able to convince the mayor of Norfolk to get serious about reducing carbon emissions in our region. Mayor Alexander signed on to the Global Covenant of Mayors, implemented his Climate Change Commission and appointed two of our moms to serve on the committee. We believe that this campaign was successful because we joined together with others in Norfolk who were also concerned about the threat of flooding, supercharged coastal storms and the increase in tornadoes to our children’s future.

    We hope that all Hampton Roads mayors will follow Norfolk’s lead so we are asking for your help to take action with other mothers and grandmothers in Virginia Beach.

    Join us on Saturday, June 30th from 10am - 12pm for a discussion forum to talk about how we can best promote sustainable energy independence with common-sense policies and job-creating innovations. Your insights as a local mother are invaluable and will certainly help us plan for our next action in Virginia Beach.

    Refreshments will be served including vegan and Gluten-free choices.

    Rev. Leo Woodberry: New push for Environmental Justice in South

    With gratitude to Rev. Leo Woodberry:

    "Our elected officials must listen to climate scientists. They must put the interests of real people ahead of the interests of corporations. And they must be honest about counting all the costs — including pollution and climate degradation, and human health costs — when considering dirty energy sources that damage our land, air, water, climate, communities and health....

    That’s the vision that brought the Justice First Tour to Portsmouth, where this past weekend we met with justice activists from groups including the Center for Sustainable Communities, Mothers Out Front, Portsmouth’s Cavalier Manor Civic League, Virginia Interfaith Power and Light, and ECO District Hampton Roads. We heard about important issues, from Virginia’s Carbon Reduction Plan to increased flooding in Hampton Roads neighborhoods to energy equity and 100 percent clean energy for all."
