What we're about


Modern Moms is an active and creative group where progressive moms and their children can spend time together exploring the world through learning, play and intelligent conversation. If you are looking for a community of open-minded and adventurous people seeking to raise their children to value education, science, kindness and diversity, please consider joining. We plan activities in and around Knoxville where moms and kids can meet new friends, share experiences and have fun together. We enjoy cultural activities, active play, outdoor pursuits, good food and fun!

**Disclaimer**We consider our group a refuge for politically left-leaning parents in a majority conservative area and we openly and frequently discuss politics and social issues. Please keep this in mind when applying to join as this environment isn't for everyone.

To join Modern Moms, prospective members answer a few questions and meet one of the group organizers in person. Once approved, Modern Moms members become part of a collective effort to create a fun, safe, inclusive, interesting, welcoming and respectful community that reflects the following values:

- Support for human rights and equality (BLM, LGBTQ, pro choice,...)

- Respect for the environment

- Interest in science and appreciation of the arts

- Desire for personal growth

- Community involvement

Modern Moms relies on its members to suggest and host meetups that allow us to:

- Socialize with other moms and their children

- Learn about other cultures

- Explore our local area

- Stay current and informed about what is going on in our world

- Gain new experiences

- Grow and develop, while encouraging our children to do the same
