About Moms Fight Back
Moms Fight Back is a community of powerful and passionate Colorado moms who are coming together, online and in their neighborhoods, to positively tackle the most pressing issues facing our kids today. It’s no secret that Colorado has been hit very hard in recent years. From Aurora in 1993, to the Columbine massacre in 1999, to the YWAM/New Life shooting of 2007, and back to Aurora in 2012 – our youth have been tragically victimized. We, Coloradans, cannot forget that others will look to us the next time a Columbine or Sandy Hook happens. Through tragedy, this state has been given a platform to lead. We, mothers, can learn from each other, and Moms Fight Back was created to be at the forefront of those efforts.
Moms Fight Back’s mission as a 501(c)4 is focused on the common good we can accomplish as women and moms. Currently, we are focusing our efforts on four vital issues: teen sexual assault, school safety, family court reform and the impact of marijuana on youth.
Through our project work, we will address each issue in the context of how it impacts a child’s life at home, at school as well as in the legislative and judicial systems.
Moms Fight Back is committed to building a community of 100,000 Colorado moms by 2018. We believe it’s paramount to give moms the opportunity, and forum, to learn and discuss how our legislators, community leaders, and local non-profits can come together to best support Colorado moms as they care for their families.
Furthermore, it is the policy and commitment of Moms Fight Back that it does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, sex, national origin, physical or mental disability, or religion. Moms Fight Back takes seriously it’s moral and legal commitment to a policy of equal opportunity and non-discrimination in employment and all personnel, grant making, training, volunteer opportunities (including Board membership) and all other programs and activities and to recruit, hire, train, and promote at all levels the most qualified individual without regard to race, ethnicity, age, color, religion, sex, gender identity, national origin, sexual orientation, transgender/transsexual identity, economic class, educational background, physical or mental disability, medical condition, or marital status.
Our sister organization Families Fight Back is a 501(c)3 organization in support of Colorado moms and dads, who are coming together – online and in their communities. In 2016, Families Fight Back is focusing on five vital issues of concern to Colorado families: teen sexual assault, school safety, foster care reform, family court reform and the impact of marijuana on youth. We will address each critical topic in the context of how they impact a child’s life at home, at school, as well as in the legislative and judicial systems. The foundation is intent on educating Colorado’s families while building both a virtual and physical support system for those families while developing public policy recommendations for Colorado.
