THEME NO. 8

...Out There

Marin County's slogan is "Marin, just a little out there." Mothers of MOMentum were asked about their experience living in Marin, and many expressed their feelings of isolation and lack of acceptance from the local culture. It’s almost as if their Iives, in comparison to the wealthy majority, are kind of "out there."

Mothers are the backbone of our society. Invest in their stories, especially ones that need our support.

Clueless

La gente vive en una burbuja en Marin. No se dan cuenta de lo que pasa en sus alrededores y mucha gente no tiene empatía con las zonas cercanas. No hay diversidad, la mayoría de la gente es rica y tiene privilegios.

 

Mucha gente me mira como si fuera inferior a ellos. Parezco más joven de lo que soy y me ven con niños y piensan que soy una cuidadora.
