MOF Tompkins organizes from the ground up. We know that the climate crisis is happening every-where and that means it's here in our own backyards too. Our work begins in our community: Tompkins County, NY. Building up from our local base, we then connect with regional and national chapters of MOF and other allies.
There's a lot to learn as we travel down the path to becoming more active in our communities. Mothers Out Front is committed to helping members grow, learn, build relation-ships, and have fun along the way. In addition to our local one-on-one support, we have access to numerous trainings through our national network.
Motherhood is the glue. We all want our children to grow up and thrive on a livable planet. The moms at Mothers Out Front know it won't happen without reaching a critical mass of parents (mothers and others) pushing to create the necessary changes. Tapping into our "mom power" gives us the needed focus and determination.
Hi All! Joe Wilson has been circulating the below call for committee members-
I think it would be amazing to have an MOFTompkins representative on this county wide committee!
"Cooperative Extension Seeks New Environmental Program Committee Members
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County (CCE-Tompkins) is seeking six community members who will form a Program Advisory Committee to develop and guide environmental issues programming in our county.
