The organization One Million Moms Off Welfare (1MMOW), is getting ready to hold their summit in Washington, DC on Friday in an effort to spread attention for the organization and their plans to help women become more independent and less reliant on welfare and other forms of government aid while trying to rebuild their lives.
The One Million Moms Launch On Washington is the catalyst to the 1MMOW by 2025 initiative of Can I Live; a private, non-profit organization dedicated to challenge the U.S. welfare system by revealing the problems in policy implementation that, for America’s moms, too often promote dependence rather than independence.
The Million Moms Launch is a singular act of unity and celebration among the Launchers and also the beginning of a dedicated initiative to move Moms off welfare dependence in the next ten years. The 1MMOW takes the position that all Americans are created equal and possessed of inalienable rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness—and to justice under the law. Yet the entitlements provided to millions of moms living at or below poverty are structured to keep them poor while entitlements offered to wealthier Americans and corporations assist in wealth creation and enhanced prosperity.
Their partner in this never-before-attempted endeavor is Men of Vision Exposed Incorporated also known as MOVE, Inc. Together they provide solutions that address parent partner leadership, healthy relationships and economic sustainability for families challenged by poverty and its many effects. MOVE is leading the charge to increase child support payments to welfare moms and push public policy that make self reliance a reality.
1MMOW in addition to their summit in DC is also working on having regional summits in the future to allow more people to attend, learn and participate without having to travel long distances.
1MMOW promises to:
- Increase earning for Moms
- Foster self-reliance and self-sufficiency
- Reduce dependency on public social welfare and private charity
- Increase the tax budgets for local, state and federal governments
