Who We Are
Moms for Social Justice DC (MSJ DC) is a chapter of the Moms for Social Justice national organization.
Moms for Social Justice was founded in 2016 by four moms in Tennessee who decided it was time to get sh*t done. Despite being in a sea of red, they established a community of individuals who were also ready to get involved in their community for causes of racial and social justice. That community became like a family, supporting one another in times of struggle and rejoicing with one another in times of joy. When one of their own relocated to Washington D.C., she wanted to take with her the love, kindness, compassion, and dedication to service of the Moms for Social Justice. Hence, MSJ DC was born.
Love, kindness, compassion, and dedication are action words. They require an emotional and physical investment. Sometimes that means calling someone in (not out) and having difficult conversations. Sometimes that means listening and sitting in your own discomfort. Sometimes it means checking to make sure everyone has been drinking their water. (We're moms! It's what we do!) It always means that, even if one of us needs to be tagged out, someone will always be there ready to be tagged in.
Moms for Social Justice DC is committed to fighting as hard for everyone's children, regardless of race, sex or gender identity, ability, or income, as we would for our own.
MSJ DC is open to anyone, but especially moms, who are ready to get sh*t done.
