#MomTheVote is a social media campaign to inspire and energize every mom in the U.S. to use the power of her vote to make a difference in her life, her family’s life, her community, and the world her children will grow up in.

Every mom wants the best for herself and for her family

Throughout this election season, the What to Expect Project will use the hashtag #MomTheVote to inspire and energize every mom to use the power of her voice to make a difference. We’ll break down issues and policies that impact the health, safety, security and economic wellbeing of you and your kids — now, and in the future — including health care, child care and paid family leave.

  • 
MOTHERHOOD IS THE ULTIMATE SISTERHOOD
  • #MomTheVote is about encouraging our fellow moms to vote
  • not telling them who to vote for (or against)

 

How do we help make this goal a reality?

  • Enable

    To empower you to speak up on issues and vote for candidates 
who vote for you and your family.

  • Centralize

    To focus on positive change instead of negative partisanship.

  • Streamline

    Make voting as easy and accessible as possible.

  • Clarify

    To clear up confusion and sort 
out facts.

Knowledge is power. Voting is power. Having the knowledge to make informed voting decisions is more powerful still.

Heidi Murkoff, Founder

Hope through action. Hope through advocacy. Hope through the vote.

Throughout this election season and beyond, join us in using the hashtag #MomTheVote to spread the word about the importance 
of voting — because the power of your vote can make your life happier, healthier, less stressful and more secure.

The United States is the only wealthy nation with no federal paid family leave policy. As a result, nearly a quarter of moms in the U.S. return to work within two weeks of childbirth — which we all know is far too soon.⁠ No mom or family should be forced (because of economic or job insecurity) to go back to work before she has recovered from pregnancy and childbirth.⁠

@potus originally included 12 weeks of paid family leave in his #BuildBackBetter plan, but it's been reduced to four weeks, and even that amount is uncertain. Let’s do something about. #MomtheVote

Contact your elected officials TODAY and urge them to #SavePaidLeave to #BuildBackBetter.

More than 120 nations provide paid family leave — but the U.S. isn’t one of them, despite all of the overwhelming proven benefits for both babies and parents. Without the guarantee of a paycheck, many moms don’t have the option of taking time off after delivery. Too many have to return to work before they’ve recovered from childbirth and before they’ve had a chance to fully bond with their babies. So how can you, and every mom, help make paid family leave a reality for everyone (including dads)? By voting.

Join us in using the hashtag #MomTheVote throughout election season to spread the word about the importance of voting — because the power of your vote can make a meaningful difference, helping shape policies that impact the health, safety, and wellbeing of yourself and your family, your community, and the world your children will grow up in.

For most working parents, child care is essential- but child care is not considered “affordable” for many parents in the US. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services deems child care “affordable” if a family pays no more than 7% of their income - 2/3 of parents spend more.

How do we make child care affordable for all? #MomTheVote allows us to use our voice to send a message to lawmakers. Vote for families first, vote for fair, quality, accessible child care. Vote for those who are providing the care to earn a fair, living wage! By voting, you are using your voice to make a change for your future.
