AND OUR MOMS
Welcome to Moms Fed Up, where we begin our story by the extraordinary journey of Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick. As a dedicated single mother of two daughters, Ann faced the uphill battle of raising her children while pursuing a career as a lawyer. Her relentless determination led her to run for office, starting at the Arizona state legislature and eventually securing a seat in Congress, even in the face of fiercely competitive races.
Throughout her tenure in Congress, Ann witnessed firsthand the power of collaboration and respectful discourse among her female colleagues. She firmly believed that with more women in Congress, more meaningful progress could be made on the pressing issues affecting families across the nation.
When Ann Kirkpatrick announced her retirement, she and her team huddled together, pondering how they could continue their important work, leveraging their strong relationships and resources. It was from this vision and shared commitment that Moms Fed Up was born.
Currently women make up only 27% of U.S. Congress
Moms with young children make up less than 10% of Congress
Since its inception, Moms Fed Up has been dedicated to supporting and uplifting women in politics. With a strong focus on endorsing and donating to over 100 exceptional female candidates across the country, our organization has made a tangible impact on increasing women’s representation in elected positions. Furthermore, we have fostered meaningful partnerships with fellow mom-elected officials in various states nationwide to expand our reach and further our contributions.
At Moms Fed Up, we recognize that moms bring unique perspectives, life experiences, and problem-solving skills to the political arena. We are inspired by the incredible potential for change that lies within the hands of mothers, and we strive to harness that potential to create a more equitable and prosperous future for all families.
Join us as we continue to champion women’s voices, support aspiring female leaders, and build an extensive network of strong, determined moms dedicated to making a difference in the lives of families across the country. Together, we can create a powerful movement that reshapes the political landscape and builds a brighter future for generations to come.
After all, there’s a good reason for the age old saying, “mother knows best.”
