    Mom to Mom: The Controversy of Clean Air

    in Family

    MomsRising, Mocha Moms and the Moms Clean Air Force present this Internet radio discussion with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, who joins moms for an online conversation about the "controversy" of clean air.

    Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, MomsRising executive director, moderates the program, with other panel members Dr. Sumita B. Khatri, co-director of the Asthma Center at the Cleveland Clinic, and asthma mom Lydia Rojas, also known as Steph’s Mom.
    Get the inside scoop on why Lisa Jackson fights with passion in Washington, D.C. Find out why an asthma doctor became an advocate, and about how one day changed a mom's life forever.
    Asthma afflicts about 7 million children in the United States. It is the reason for some 800,000 emergency room visits a year, and is the 3rd leading cause of hospitalization among children under the age of 15. From 2001 to 2009, Americans with asthma grew from 20.1 million to 24.6 million, a jump of more than 12% over 8 years, with children disproportionately affected.
    Yet even in the midst of an asthma epidemic, the idea that children need clean air is up for debate among many policy makers who prioritize energy interests over children’s health. In this Internet radio program, moms look at the connection between air pollution and asthma and the “controversy” of clean air. Finally, we'll talk about parenting, why the fight for clean air is absolutely personal, and how we can win.
    Please let us know you'll join us and RSVP here.

    View from The Wright Way

    in Education

    She calls herself the "Badass Breastfeeding, Babywearing, Attachment parenting, Pole dancing, Yogi Momma! Who inspires and empowers men & women Her WAY! Ms. Wrights Way". 

    That's a mouth full but when you take the time to read her blog you know she is all that and then some. 

    Join Rebecca and Moon as they sit down with Ashley Wright to discuss how she got on the path of breastfeeding advocacy and attachment parenting. From Pole dancing & yoga to breastfeeding on the red carpet she lives a very in your face, take it or live it life that we admire here at View From A Rack. 

    "Hailing from the illustrious Golden State she always had an appreciation for love, fitness, artistic expression and a natural way of living. After having obtained a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Hampton University, she began to slowly come into her own rejecting the demands of what others felt were appropriate for her life. However, it wasn’t until she became a mother, that she truly understood her path and the necessity of support.

    Having organized the most attended World Breastfeeding Event to date with the Northeast Valley Health Center, she began to live out loud, using social media to build her village, increase her family and establish a strong support system; spreading the message of self-love, healing and natural parenting.

    Her message to all parents and individuals is, “It is okay to be 100% committed to your child(ren) and loved ones. In doing so make sure that you take the time to give to yourself."

    MOMocrats MOMochat: Leaning In -- Or Tuning Out?

    in Politics Progressive

    Women's History Month started off with a bang this year, thanks to a couple of high profile female tech execs who have been featured on magazine covers and headlines for the past few weeks. 
    If we were truly equal, the fuss over Marissa Mayers’ no-telecommuting directive at Yahoo! would have been focused on the protests of ALL affected employees, instead of just the mothers. And Sheryl Sandberg would not have needed to advise young women to “Lean In” to get ahead in the workplace.
    Nanette Fondas of MomsRising takes part in this week's  podcast. hosted by the MOMocrats. Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills will also steer the usual political discussion from the progressive POV.
    Produced by Engender Media Group.
