Mama’s Day, Our Way!

May 6, 2013

The National Center for Lesbian Rights is excited to participate in a fantastic campaign to celebrate Mother’s Day. We are partnering with our friends at Strong Families, a national initiative dedicated to advancing the needs of all families, to celebrate Mama’s Day Our Way! Mama’s Day Our Way is a campaign celebrating and embracing the diversity of our families as they really are, not as any greeting card company thinks they should be.

These e-cards highlight families of color, LGBT families, immigrant families, multi-racial families, young families, and single parent families.  We know the true diversity of our families can’t be captured in a few dozen cards, but we hope you find these cards inspiring and moving, and that they illustrate something essential and familiar. Please join us by sharing these free, customizable ecards with those you love.

In addition to sending ecards to your loved ones, we are also urging people send a card to Senators, reminding them to consider the needs of all families, including same-sex binational couples, in the immigration reform fight.

NCLR has a long history working to protect and strengthen LGBT families. In fact, this work has been a cornerstone of our mission since we were founded, and we are proud to continue this commitment  through our Family Protection Project, our Immigration Project, and our growing reproductive justice work.

Please join us and Strong Families in celebrating Mama’s Day this year by highlighting our diverse and beautiful families.  Share an e-card with your loved one today.

Happy Mama’s Day!
