In early March, eight Mountain Mamas from Montana and Colorado took time off of work, arranged child care, packed their bags and traveled to Washington, D.C. to make their voices heard with our decision makers. The journey each mama traveled to arrive at our nation’s capitol was different, but each with our own experiences, perspective, and thoughts. The most important service we provide at Mountain Mamas is education, support, and inspiration to wield our voices for the betterment of our kids. As Melinda French Gates remarked, “A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.
