Mothers Out Front is proud to unveil our new website. It’s designed to strengthen our growing national movement by lifting up our work into a shared narrative and create opportunities to learn from each other.

We’ve spent the past year on the design and functionality of the site. We’re excited to finally share it with you. We believe it will help members across the country feel connected as we work in our local communities creating a livable climate for all children. 

As part of the new design, the state websites have merged with the national site into one united website. This state site no longer will be updated.

We hope you enjoy exploring our new site. If you have any questions or concerns, please email [email protected].

Idle-Free Schools PWC- Campaign Launch

Did you know that leaving your car engine on for one minute produces more carbon monoxide - a toxic gas - than the smoke from 3 packs of cigarettes? Ac­cord­ing to the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency, "Chil­dren are more sus­cep­ti­ble to air pol­lu­tion than healthy adults be­cause their res­pi­ra­tory sys­tems are still de­vel­op­ing and they have a faster breath­ing rate".

When parents wait to drop off or pick up their kids from school they often leave their car engine on (idling), creating a pollution "hot spot" and harming our children's health. Join us as we launch our Idle-Free Schools Campaign to learn what you can do to make your children's school idle-free and help protect their little lungs!

Blowing the whistle on the DEQ

Virginia's VA Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) hasn't been enforcing environmental laws on the Mountain Valley Pipeline project. The DEQ must protect our water and endangered species from further harm.
Join Mothers Out Front Roanoke to hear from Climate and Environmental Leader, Freeda Cathcart to learn why it's important to blow our whistles on the DEQ to protect our water.

For over two years, Freeda Cathcart has been documenting the continuing pollution from the MVP into the streams and habitat for the endangered Roanoke logperch. She's the Soil and Water Conservation District Director representing Roanoke City and has repeatedly asked to present evidence to the State Water Control Board (SWCB) that the DEQ hasn't been enforcing the law they are required to under the . So far the SWCB hasn't allowed her to present to them.
In this presentation, she will share her evidence from monitoring and provide attendees with an understanding about the harm MVP is causing to our waterways. She will also help participants make the case in public comments to the SWCB on why they should reject MVPs 401 permit.
We invite all individuals and organizations to join the Whistleblowing campaign!
