Participants of the 2013 walk for our grandchildren

Just like our kids, the 150,000 Moms Clean Air Force members come in all ages, races and political persuasions. From pregnant moms-to-be who follow us for up-to-the-minute information about how mercury poisoning affects their unborn baby, to parents and grandparents who demand that our leaders move forward on President Obama’s climate action plan, we share a similar mission in protecting children’s health.

From July 22nd  to July 27th, grandparents, parents and young people have joined a 100-mile, eight-day trek from Camp David to the White House for the The Walk for Our Grandchildren. United by their sweat and determination to confront the growing crisis of climate change, marchers are calling on President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline and to take further steps to leave fossil fuels in the ground.

MCAF is walking in spirit with this pro-active (and hot) group of individuals. What to take back the future and join this powerful group of individuals across the country marching against the fossil fuel industry?
