ACTIONS: Raising Kids

If you’re a parent of an infant or school-aged children, you probably spend a lot of your time and energy ensuring they have what they need to thrive. It’s an incredibly important role. The generation you’re raising will play a critical role in the future of our species and others on this planet.

Parenting has always been complicated, but it’s even more so now when there are so many crises. From deciding whether to have children to raising your kids to be compassionate and climate-friendly citizens, the conscious choices you make can help limit the climate emissions your family produces while amplifying your child’s positive effect on the world. As you make these choices for yourself, it’s also important to ensure others have choices too. Support reproductive justice, including access to contraception, abortion, assistive reproduction technologies, and prenatal care.
