The first ever Mother’s Advocacy Tea, a civic open house for all members of the Hampton Roads community to attend to learn how moms are leading the way for civic change and community engagement, was held on Saturday, May 12th. Attendees visited tables staffed by local volunteers from local non-profit, non-partisan organizations to learn how they can get involved and add their unique talents and voices to organizations that share their personal values.
The event was co-sponsored by Mothers Out Front and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Participating organizations included Virginia Organizing, PFLAG, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), YWCA, and The League of Women Voters. Virginia Beach City Councilwoman, Barbara Henley provided opening remarks.
Thank you to all our partners for a terrific first!
