How will you honor your mother this Mother’s Day? What will you do to let your mom, grandmas, aunties, and mentors know that you learned their lessons of love and care for others?

Mothers Protect Us - Make Sure Congress Protects Them

Stand Up For Moms

This Mother's Day, honor your mom, and all the amazing women in your life, by telling Congress to stand up for mothers. Congress can act quickly and decisively when it wants to — its members recently fixed flight delays caused by sequestration cuts. But nutrition and other programs that help moms in the United States and around the world are still on the chopping block.

There’s only one way to fix this and protect mothers and children from harmful cuts!

Email Congress right now and tell your senators and representative to stop these cuts and instead enact a balanced, responsible budget deal that protects our mothers, our children, and our economy. As a thank you, we will send a free e-card to any of the women in your life. We will let them know that you honor them by standing with mothers everywhere!

Mothers protect us. Make sure Congress protects them! Email Congress now and celebrate Mother's Day in a way that makes a difference. Together, we can make sure that mothers and children in the United States and around the world have the nutrition they need to thrive.

Thank you for joining me in standing with mothers everywhere.

Blessings,

Alice Walker Duff
Managing Director, Bread for the World

Do people think that just because we are working on Mothers Day that we are not Mothers?! We are working to feed our families or clothe them or help pay for a school project! We would much rather be home with our families and children but our bills need paid. Quit being so rude on Mothers Day to working Mothers!

Signed. Thanks JL, but since Mothers, Grandmothers and children do not buy elections particularly for the Repug/Tea Bagged I see little chance of this ever even getting into let alone out of a US House committee.

Ladies & gentlemen, some of us only wish we still had our mother's to honor.
So, without preaching, may I say, don't forget her.
