The Pursuit of Healthiness– A Discussion to Inspire and Empower (Update)

I had the honor and the utter pleasure of co-hosting a discussion among women who are using social media to power their actions for health. This was a mighty exciting group of women, who are doing some awesome things online and beyond.

Renee Ross (@ReneeJRoss) gathering forces on matters of health at Blogher.com

Helen Jonsen (@WorkingMotherHj) editor of WorkingMother.com

Tonya Lewis Lee (@TLewisLee) writer, producer and activist focused on health, education and justice.

Simone I. Smith (@simoneismith) entrepreneur, mother of four and cancer survivor who devotes her time and resources to the fight against cancer.

Karyn Brianne (@thefabgiver) co-founder of The Red Pump Project. The red Pump Project is a non-profit that raises awareness about impact of HIV/AIDS on women & girls…and the reason I rock my red pumps in March every year!

Emily McKhann (@emilymckhann), founding mother of TheMotherhood.com

And me, @MaDonnaNegra, representing the Mom’s Clean Air Force and my commitment to spreading awareness of clean air issues and why the health consequences of air pollution in my community is a national disgrace and a social justice issue whose time has come.

Those who joined the discussion at TheMotherhood.com, discussed activism online, including the following questions:

What inspires you to act?         What matters are important to you as a woman and a mother?          

What can you do about about it?         And how can you find other like-minded mother-activists to join or to join you?  

It was well attended and so, so informative! This discussion was everything we hoped it would be and MORE!
