Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
The 2009 Mothers Acting Up Calendar is here!

No comments

The 2009 MAU calendar, The Moment, is dedicated to moments of personal change that shift the direction and purpose of our lives. Often these extraordinary moments are heralded by very ordinary tasks. They arrive – when we're cradling babies, grocery shopping or bicycling – and begin magically transforming us into passionate advocates for social change.

The Moment is a weekly engagement calendar and guide that also offers tools and information on how to: get and stay inspired, get educated, and engage with other individuals and organizations working on important issues. Most importantly, the calendar features portraits of people who inspire our own activism – from the mom next door to Isabel Allende, Paul Hawken, Mukhtar Mai and Ann Veneman. This calendar and guide is a tribute to pivotal moments of change, designed to incite your own year of Moments!
