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.

    Norfolk Team Testifies to the Dept. of Environmental Quality

    Several members of Mothers Out Front spoke out last week at the Virginia Dept. of Environmental Quality Public Hearing to support Executive Directive 11 - to reduce and cap carbon emissions - and in support of bringing Virginia into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

    We asked the DEQ to help draw down climate change by encouraging a reduction in carbon emissions but also asked that they consider lowering the cap as far as possible.
