Moms Clean Air Force Nevada brings attention to issues and policies that impact clean air, climate change and children’s health. We fight for a world free of harmful chemicals in our air, water and food, so children can grow up healthy with every opportunity to thrive. We educate and activate moms and their families to work with local, state and federal leaders to advance clean air policies and climate solutions. We are building a community of moms who care by meeting with elected officials, organizing and attending local events, speaking at community meetings and press conferences, and serving as a media resource on behalf of our children’s and community’s health. By collectively speaking out against air pollution and climate change, we are creating a powerful force in Nevada that is rooted in the love we have for our children.
Our Moms & Mayors program connects moms with their mayors and local leaders to improve children’s health and build resilient communities. We educate, empower and mobilize Moms in their hometowns to work with their local elected leaders to implement clean air strategies, reduce toxins in the community and take action on climate change. We also train Moms to join boards and commissions and urge them to run for office.
Our Baby Power program educates and engages expectant and new moms on our issues with the message: every baby has the power to make you want to change the world.
Ecomadres is a collaborative program between GreenLatinos and Moms Clean Air Force that brings Latina moms together to address issues of clean air, climate change, and toxins that affect the health of Latino children and families. The program arms Madres with reliable information and solutions through online resources, articles, action tools and on-the-ground events, and provides an inclusive community that empowers and lifts up the voices of Madres for the benefit of our communities. Ecomadres has a vibrant network of state-base field teams and allies across the country.
