A gathering of Mother's Day for Peace.
The founder of Mother’s Day was a righteous, anti-capitalist bitch. This year, let’s skip the toxic flowers and honor peace.
These e-cards feature original illustrations by artists Micah Bazant, Melanie Cervantes, Veronica Bayetti Flores of National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, Taja Lindley, Nikki McClure, Kirbie Platero and Al Na'ir Lara of Young Women United, and Jenifer Carter. Shanelle Matthews of Forward Together told Colorlines that this campaign aims to "shift the narrative of how people think about family. We wanted to create a line of greeting cards that spoke to the marginalized moms in our communities whose faces we never see on the front of those cards."
Strong Families' vision is to make sure every family—no matter what it looks like—has the rights, recognition and resources it needs to thrive. Learn more about them here, and check out their resources page for info about family, community, and reproductive justice.
