Los Angeles, CA, USA – September 30, 2019 – Simona Grace, a single working mom in Los Angeles and an advocate of progressive family policies formed a Political Action Committee called Moms In Office to help elect mothers to public office at all levels of Government. The PAC aims to increase the representation of moms in government — this would likely influence family-friendly legislation being considered by Congress.
At the beginning of 2019 there were no Political Action Committees in the United States supporting moms. The purpose-driven media channel offers relevant information for moms to strengthen their political voice and the PAC provides an avenue for giving to progressive moms running for office. It is their mission to amplify the voice of all moms and increase women’s political participation.
As the website states: “Moms in office is an online media and giving forum founded to empower moms. We are on a mission to strengthen the political voice of all moms and help elect women with children to public office. We want to provide information that is relevant to the lives of families — not just advice about changing diapers- we are about issues at the intersection of culture and society.”
Moms make up a large segment of the US population and they make up the smallest number of Federal Government. Increasing the representation of moms in government would promote women’s political empowerment and help lawmakers pass legislation supporting families such as paid leave. Moms in Office strives to be an inclusive PAC and give visibility to underrepresented and overlooked women in various communities.
In an interview this week with GirTalkHQ.com, founder Simona Grace shared her thoughts on the current political climate, why family-friendly policies are important to her and are the backbone of our society, and how her own upbringing in Hungary behind the Iron Curtain shaped her into the fierce, determined, progressive advocate she is today.
