Mother’s Day 2021

In the words of the modern philosopher Beyonce, “Who run the world? Girls“—and honestly, where is the lie? Every single day mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, and other maternal figures wake up & choose to make the world go round.

 

For Mother’s Day 2021, we wanted to honor the hard work of all mothers & maternal figures by spotlighting a few mother-run organizations that are doing vital work in our communities:

  • People’s Paper Co-op – A women led, women focused, women powered art and advocacy project. (Artwork pictured, Created by Mary Tremonte)
  • Mama’s Bail Out Day / Decarcerate PA – The local chapter of a national movement to give incarcerated mothers an opportunity to spend Mother’s Day with their families.
  • Mothers In Charge – A violence prevention, education and intervention-based organization that advocates for and supports those affected by violence.
  • Oshun Family Center – Providing racially concordant care to members of the Black community that are struggling to cope with life transitions, especially those impacted by postpartum mood changes, birth, and racial trauma.
  • Rae’s Roots – A wellness tea company for mothers, founded by a Chinese American mother.

 

Assorted artwork on the front windows of Tattooed Mom, featuring several pieces from The People’s Paper Co-op’s “Free Out Mothers” Poster Series.

 

PS. A mom can also be a place you go to eat & drink, where you feel safe & loved :’) Hint hint, it’s Tattooed Mom, and we love you <3

XOXO,
Tmoms

Why We Vote: Resources for a Better Future

UPDATE FOR 5/18/21: We’ve added a few important resources ahead of the May 18th primary election! For more information, check out A Closer Look at the Philadelphia Ballot (jump to section). Strangely, we weren’t expecting the issue of voter suppression to have changed so rapidly between November 2020 and now—YIKES!—so please note that some of the resources in that section may not reflect the most up-to-date information.

 

 

As part of our ongoing commitment towards conscientious activism and anti-racism, TMoms will be using this space, as well as our social media pages, to aggregate resources & information regarding:

No radical movement begins or ends with voting, but voting is a necessary & individual choice with a complicated historical significance. Voting is a privilege, and we must use that privilege along with activism & community care to help the most vulnerable among us.

 

This space is a work in progress. If you’d like to bring additional resources to our attention, feel free to email us.
