These Cards Will Help You Celebrate ALL Mamas

By N. Jamiyla Chisholm May 09, 2019

For the ninth year in a row, Forward Together, a multi-state organization that advocates for rights, recognition and resources for families, is celebrating Mother’s Day (May 12) with the Mamas Day campaign.

Created in 2011, the campaign is an all-encompassing love fest for all the people who step into the role of mother, regardless of prevailing ideas about what makes a mama. Each year, the organization partners with artists who create original art inspired by mothers and families. That art is then turned into personalized, downloadable cards for the mamas in your life.

This year’s collection includes work from print maker and digital illustrator Chucha Marquez, comic artist Ethan Parker, visual artist Melanie Cervantes and illustrator Mohammed Fayaz (“Mojuicy”).

“Mother’s Day was founded on the power of mamas united against war and violence. This year for Mamas Day, we honor that tradition by celebrating the power of our movement mamas,” the organization writes on its website.
