Burke County NC Moms Rising Meet Up

Have you ever wished that our elected leaders really understood the challenges families face?  Ever wanted to know more about how you can make your voice heard and improve the lives of families in our country? Would you like to meet others in your community who want to make a difference?  You can do ALL THREE of these at the same time! Come join Moms Rising for our first ever Burke County NC meet up on September 13.

What: Moms Rising Meet up
When: Tuesday, September 13, 2016, from 6 PM-7 PM
Where: Morganton Food Matters Market, Community Room, 210 Avery Ave, Morganton, NC

MomsRising has over a million members nationwide, and nearly 41,000 right here in North Carolina, including other folks in Burke County. 

While it's great (and powerful!) to come together online, sometimes you just want to have the chance to get to know each other in person and talk about the issues affecting families in your own community. 

We at Moms Rising want to hear about your experiences and concerns and share with you ways you can get involved right in your own community. This will be a fun, informal evening all about making new connections.  All you have to do is come!

We'll provide the appetizers, but you are also welcome to purchase dinner! As with everything Moms Rising does, you don't have to be a mom to attend and kids are always welcome. (We'll have crafts to keep them busy and happy!) The more the merrier, so invite your friends and neighbors!

This is the first Moms Rising Burke County MeetUp.  We want you to share your experiences and learn more about the work of Moms Rising. Together we're making a big difference in North Carolina and nationwide, and we'd love to connect with you about getting involved in your local community. RSVP to
