Middle Tennessee Progressive Calendar.

You can find rather a lot of good stuff over on the Middle Tennessee Progressive calendar, including information about Nashville MAU weekly Mobilize the Mamas gatherings. (We're having consistently good turnout, and today was no exception; it even included lots of NashMAU families who are also homeschoolers and are currently doing a cooperative learning group on Friday mornings about immigrants and refugees. Since Centennial Park is hosting the Doctors Without Borders exhibit with the refugee camp in the middle of the city during this closing week, today's group expanded with their participation for a time.)We're so happy that a new family found us today via the Middle Tennessee Progressive Calendar. Right on!!

Mobilizing the Mamas

Nashville MAU (Mothers Acting Up) and cohorts will be meeting up for a weekly bring the family playdates-- an effort to socialize, enjoy play & mobilize the mamas (and daddies) by creating some valuable community building time for families. The more the merrier! This is a y'all come event. Bring snacks to share, water, suncreen, blanket, outdoor toys / chalk, a craft to work on.... The playground at Centennial thankfully provides some good shade cover. Children of all ages are welcome. Nursing friendly environment.

When: Fridays 9:30am-11:30 am
Where: Centennial Park Playground, near28th Ave. & Poston Ave. - see map

*In the event of inclement weather, we will gather at Borders Books & Music on West End, just across the street from the park.

Mamas (and daddies) grab a cuppa and the little ones' hands and come on, come on.... Bring questions, interesting newspaper articles, copies of "An Inconvenient Truth" to lend or share, and any other information to shed light on in the realm of raising our children, our consciousness and our collective voices for a better world. From these informal gatherings, we hope to get to know one another, create collective actions where appropriate, engage in community service as folks see fit and arrange some slightly more formalized family field trips (visits to our representatives, the state capitol, local schools, family farms, etc.) Bring your ideas!! Bring your friends. Bring lawn games and outdoor toys to share. Bring snacks or picnic lunch if you care to. (Both good play and community building are best fueled by snacks!)
