    "Being a member of Mothers Out Front is important to me because it opens a platform for ordinary people to have a voice regarding extraordinary concerns. Mothers Out Front has helped opened my eyes to the reality that climate change is happening and there is an urgent need for change if we want a healthy future for our children. I am excited to be a part of an organization that is passionate about bringing action and awareness to the forefront and helping to hold elected officials to their responsibility and promise to serve the people." - Monique Adams, Norfolk, VA. (a city at high risk due to sea level rise.)

    Monique is an extraordinary volunteer who joined us in 2016.  Welcome, Monique!
