Moms and Mayors – Mama Summit Toolkit

Organize a Mama Summit: Toolkit

Organize a Mama Summit in May 2018 to thank your mayor and city council for steps they have taken and encourage them to do more.

What is a Mama Summit? A mama summit is a Moms Clean Air Force locally organized event that brings together our membership and local leaders to bring attention to issues and policy that impact clean air and children’s health. The goal of this day of action is to amplify the message of fighting for clean air and protecting children’s health; and that local elected officials are willing to take necessary actions in the absence of federal leadership through local means of governance.

While events may differ in size and type, common components could include:

  • Mama Summit Proclamation from your city.
  • Invite local moms, dads and other friends of climate to participate.
  • Invite local children to become “Mayor for a Day” and write their clean air wishes to city hall.
  • Invite one or two local speakers to talk about how your city is advocating for clean air OR a topic related to clean and air children’s health.
