We are an organization that brings structure and strategy to progressive efforts here in Hampton Roads.
Five women came together after the 2016 Presidential election and formed MotherBoard757 with the goal of getting more women involved in local, state, and federal government. Our group focuses on 7 core issues, 5 actions, and a 7 dollar suggested donation. We send out a newsletter to subscribed members by-weekly during election time with updates on the 757. We meet whenever it is necessary and push that information out in emails and on FaceBook.
