Badass Mamas Manifesto

Becoming a mother changes your world. Being a BADASS MAMA makes you a world changer. 

As Badass Mamas, we rise up to heed the call of motherhood: be better, make our world better. Our uprising is deeply personal, but doesn’t happen alone. Together, we cultivate the potential within ourselves, our children, our communities, and the human family to grow in resilience, creativity, and compassion.


We are capable of grand achievements, and we believe in our ability to carry out our best intentions.

We claim our power without bravado, allowing room for uncertainty while standing strong in who we are.

We give our care generously and receive it from others graciously in the knowledge that caring cultivates healing and growth. We believe that people can change and grow for a lifetime. 

We own our intensity and our anger, knowing this fire is the birthplace of justice and transformation.

We embrace the emotional and vulnerable human experience. We welcome raw feelings in ourselves, our families, and all people.

We are bold and brave for ourselves, our children, and our communities. Despite our fears and discomfort, we take action.

We claim all the parts of ourselves, even where they contradict each other. We are curious and compassionate about differences of opinion and welcome differences of being and experience because we are all in this together.


We nourish and protect caring relationships first and foremost.

We raise our children not by shaping them into who we want them to be, but by helping them grow into who they were born to be. 

Our work begins in our families and extends into our communities and our world to create a more just, inclusive, and compassionate.

We rest and recover from our efforts, turning our energy inward to renew our strength for the work we are called to do.
With a willingness to feel our sadness and wounds, we mourn and grieve our failed efforts and unfulfilled longings. Through grief, we release what what we wish would be and reveal what is actually before us.


We are for each other as we seek to reach our fullest human potential, help our children grow, and create the world we want.

We honor the cyclical nature of our experience, not seeking balance but inviting ebb and flow, moving through rhythms and seasons of action and rest, grief and renewal.  

We work together toward transformative change in ourselves and our children to create an inclusive, just, and compassionate world.
