Beyond Cookbooks & Flowers: Why Mother’s Day Matters More Than Ever in this Election Year

Let’s step back in time together to revisit the origins of Mother’s Day to remember how unstoppable we can be when united behind our determination to create a just and loving world. Along the journey, Grenda will share about her experience going to the Women’s March on Washington and offer a call to action and share ways to make our voices matter in this election year.
