Mission:

Moms Clean Air Force is a community of moms and dads united against air pollution – including the urgent crisis of our changing climate – to protect our children’s health.

We arm members with reliable information and solutions through online resources, articles, action tools and on-the-ground events.

Tomorrow is the big day!I hope you will join us for our Play-In for Climate Action in Washington, DC. All of us at Moms Clean Air Force are incredibly excited to gather with over 400 registrants (and counting) plus eleven organizational partners on the grassy lawn at our nation’s Capitol. Join us to send a powerful message for climate action.Maryland Supermom and writer for Baltimore Fishbowl, Laurel Peltier, will be attending the Play-In with her children. Check out this post she wrote for us highlighting all of the reasons why people are showing up on Tuesday morning. As Laurel states, “It’s the perfect time to show our lawmakers in person the beautiful children that are at stake as they dither about climate change.”

Register now! (Or just show up. Walk-ins are welcome too.) We’d love to see you there. We welcome aunties, uncles, moms, dads, non-parents – anyone who cares about kids’ future and kids’ health – to join us, with or without kids in tow.

The Play-In starts at 9:30 am with music, puppets, games, crafts, and more. We’ll have a press conference at 11:00 am, then a short march. Questions? See this blog post by NoVA blogger Jessica Haney for all the answers.
