Be The Change

The world around us is changing all the time, and we often have to change in response.  This morning, we’ll explore what it could be like to make it the other way around- how might we make creative change within and between us, toward making the world we wish to see?

  • Moms On a Mission is a grassroots, community based group of mothers who show up to East High School in Madison every single school  day to help foster the school community our kids deserve. MOMs creates a nonviolent environment by being present , by creating relationships, by de-escalating conflict, and by bringing community volunteers together to make a difference, right away, on the ground. MOMS has quickly and effectively harnessed the collective power of dozens of volunteers to support approximately 500 students on the ground. In addition they are powerful advocates for long-term, positive social change, equity, conflict resolution, and restorative justice practices.
