Mamas March

Children, regardless of race or social class, are victimized at higher rates than adults, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

We're just days away from Mothers Day, but dozens of moms are saying --- "forget the flowers, we want change." They told state lawmakers that as part of the third annual "Mamas March." They are pushing for things like increasing the minimum wage, earned sick time and affordable child care--- issues important to moms.

"It's so important we talk about the interconnectedness of all of these issues-- domestic violence, flex time, fair pay-- all of them are interconnected," said Danielle Atkinson, of Mothering Justice. "We're really talking about issues moms are facing."
