About the Event
Contrary to the idiom, the fight for civil rights is neither a sprint nor a marathon but more akin to a relay race that spans generations. As Coretta Scott King explained, “Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.”
While we run towards our ideals, we must identify realistic, practical points at which we can pass the baton to the next generation and we must train them to grab it and keep running. That’s where the MAR mission of “doing the work, starting at home” becomes its most powerful. As moms and those who mother, we have a profound influence on whether our children are equipped and empowered to carry the torch after us.
Such a long race requires concentration, planning, and measured action. The goal is not to arrive; it is to keep progress moving as our awareness of true freedom evolves with every generation.
Hearing George Floyd call out for his "Mama" and acknowledging our power to "be the change"—through both ourselves and our children—inspired us to start Moms Against Racism.
This conference is inspired by over 6,000 Moms worldwide who have answered this call to "Do The Work. Starting At Home." Over the course of the two days moms and those in mothering roles are welcomed from near and far to learn WHY Race Matters.
