American Mothers is a non-governmental organization in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. We are currently working with the United Nations and the Commission on the Status of Women to raise awareness about the issue of violence against women and children worldwide.

American Mothers also works closely with other organizations around the globe who share our same mission. See what some of these women are doing to make the world a better place or join our global coalition.  

"Healthy mothers and healthy children make healthy societies.  And giving them health is a job for all.  Everyone has a role to play...

No woman should lose life, giving life.  And no child should come into this world motherless.  Every woman is our sister and mother.  Every child is our daughter or son."

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
