Burning Moms is a community of fabulous mom-freaks with children.

We meet weekly to go for walks, enjoy play dates and talk with one another.

We're here to support one another with issues, be it the isolation of being a full-time mom, the struggles of being a working mom, the fears of never attending another party, wearing another costume or going on another playa trip, our relationship with our partners, our parents and others, our identity issues, body issues, body image issues, sexuality issues, maternal emotions, and other things remarkable, poignant and interesting.

Essentially, we Burning Moms of Los Angeles feeled burned by burning too many pans of snickerdoodles for too many burny bake sales to raise money for the art, PE, music, and other programs we think our–and all–public school children should have as a matter of course. We feel burned by the fact that California, the 8th largest global economy, is 48th out of 50 states in public school funding; meanwhile our LA Unified school district bureaucracy’s budgetary habits seem to involve lighting twenty, hundred and thousand dollar bills on fire and flinging them out of the windows of 333 S. Beaudry (or into the pockets of consultants) while for “enrichment” our children sing karoake in outdoor cement rings choked with weeds.

As our children seem to make up the one educational group which HAS no lobby, we threw the first ever California Children’s Rally on June 17, 2008 at the Sacramento Capitol and are throwing the second one April 7, 2009, same venue. Join us. . .
