The International Mothers and Mothering Network is a global consortium of over 80 motherhood organizations. IMMN's focus, in particular, is on progressive mothers groups - mothers from the global south, mothers in poverty, mothers who are activists, mothers with disabilities, welfare mothers, grandmother caregivers and others, who are vested in feminist perspectives on maternal well-being, health; including but not limited to, safety, freedom of expression, equal rights, benefits for families and caregivers and support for organizations that encourage a platform for continued pragmatic change-work.

Child Rights Information Netowrk
CRIN envisions a world in which every child enjoys all of the human rights promised by the United Nations, regional organisations, and national governments alike.
