Field Highlights: “Your Mama Would Be Proud”
While for most Mother’s Day meant paying homage to our mothers and grandmothers, for the NWF activists in Montana & Michigan it meant participating in a stroller brigade for stronger clean air protections for their kids.
In Missoula, Montana parents & their kids took to the street outside Senators Baucas’ and Testers office to thank them for their support for stronger EPA regulations.
In Lansing, Michigan nurses & mothers gathered for a stroller brigade at the capitol. Click here to find out more about the stroller brigades
Thank you to all of our wonderful activists who helped protect their children’s future by supporting the Clean Air Act!
