Did you see that?! Last night we watched Gov. Palin, a self-proclaimed hockey mom, accept the Republican nomination for Vice President.
As we watched Gov. Sarah Palin's speech, we were dazzled to see a mom on center stage with a baby in her arms, but we didn't hear much about the issues that mothers care about and deal with each and every day. We didn't hear what she's going to do about the fact that a child is born every 41 seconds in our nation without healthcare; or about how she'll address the fact that too few parents have access to affordable early learning/child care for their children. We want to know what she's going to do to make sure mothers stop getting paid less for the same work as men just because they have children.
Here's the link to a letter asking Sarah Palin where she stands on issues that matter most to American families.
Forward this email to as many friends as possible so that we can send Gov. Palin a letter with a huge number of signatures. Let's let her know that moms are paying attention and that these issues are at the top of our list when we vote.FWIW, MomsRising is awesome - like most moms I know, they get shit done!
UPDATE: I just received an email from MomsRising:
We got such a huge response to our call to action this morning asking Governor Palin where she stands on critically important issues to mothers, we crashed our website!
It's back up and ready for more of you to send a letter...get to it if you haven't already!
