Thousands of Mother’s Day Cards Sent to Muslim, Immigrant Moms

There is no one size fits all when it comes to the definition of motherhood.
Yet, each year on Mother’s Day — one of the biggest commercial holidays in the United States — many cards and other merchandise sold are often lacking in diversity or don't reflect the makeup of the country.
In an effort to change that, Forward Together, a national multiracial organization that works with community leaders for social change, started "Mamas Day". The annual event, now in its sixth year highlights women who are often overlooked in the mainstream celebration of Mother’s Day.
