Commemorate Mothers Day with the #DearMamaLetters Campaign

In honor of Mother's Day, CBMA wants to celebrate and thank all of the women in our network and beyond who work hard every day to lead, support and nurture our families and communities!

As an extension of the "Dear Mama: Extended Children" Series we launched last year in partnership with Mothers Against Police Brutality (MABP), we will be taking to social media throughout the weekend to share our public declaration of support of Black mothers, with the biggest push taking place on Mother's Day. 

Join us again this year! 

Here's how you can participate:

  1. Post photos or videos of you and the mothers/mother figures in your life on social media with the hashtag #DearMamaLetters
  2. Create a short poem or letter to post on social media using the same hashtag
  3. Amplify Black women and Black women-led organizations you know who are advocating against police and community violence by tagging them on social media

We hope you will take part, and wish all of the Mothers in our network and communities a very Happy Mother's Day!
