Politics - like parenthood - is a marathon, not a sprint. Now that the election is over, it's time to turn our attention to the next leg of this race, getting family policies passed. And President-Elect Obama and the new Congress will need our voices and support in order to make this happen.
Sign a huge card from MomsRising to President-Elect Obama that reads: "We look forward to working with you to enact more family-friendly policies": www.momsrising.org/obamacard
We will deliver this huge card (let's face it, a little theater and press attention really help make a point) with thousands of your signatures to his staff and display it outside of the White House for ample photo ops. Just imagine, a giant card from us, the White House in the background, tens of thousands of moms signing on. Now that not only makes a picture perfect point, it also shows that there's a movement of committed parents who support these issues.
But that's not all! Obama and his staff have invited the American people to share their stories, hopes and priorities online. Thousands of people have visited the Office of the President-Elect website in the last few days - it's your turn! Just sign the card and hang on - your computer will automatically redirect you to the website comment form. Your comments will reinforce our message that parents care about family-friendly issues.
