What is Mom Congress?

Mom Congress™ is the policy organization for moms in the U.S. – a mother’s membership organization that is addressing the most pressing policy issues of motherhood including what we call the “motherload” (the stress that U.S. mothers carry, at higher rates than other developed countries).
