We gather for a city where no child is stopped and frisked, a country where no mother is deported, where families around the world are safe from war. This Mother’s Day, mothers across NYC will be uniting for a day of action.  Issues, ranging from war to police violence, have separated mothers from their children and torn families apart for far too long. Sunday, May 13, join us in saying enough is enough.

We will start the day by supporting a Mother’s Day Peace Stroll hosted by the Granny Peace Brigade at 11:30am. The Peace Brigade and supporters will meet at the Columbus Circle entrance to Central Park, walking to songs from the Raging Grannies and the Rude Mechanical Orchestra.

At 1pm, we will be joining Mothers Resisting Racist Policing, an ad hoc collective of black and brown mothers organizing a Mother’s Day response to police violence.  This starts at 1pm at E 158th Street and 3rd Avenue in the Bronx.

The second half of the day will be a Citywide Movement Assembly at 5pm at Judson Church, 55 Washington Square South.


In honor of Mother’s Day, and all of the mothers that have been severed from their children by war, immigration laws, prisons, and police violence, we will begin the City Movement Assembly at Judson Church with a speak-out on these issues. There will be a station for card-making, and the Assembly will end with a potluck and dance party!
