 Mothers Arms Chapter Organization


1)  We encourage women everywhere to start a chapter in their area – singles, mothers, grandmothers.
     a)  Ideas for starting a Chapter –

           1)   Invite your neighbors, friends, relatives, co-workers for an organizational meeting.
           2)  Start a Chapter at your place of worship.

           3)  Place flyers advertising your new Chapter (flyers can be requested through National
                Headquarters) at grocery stores, Laundromats, day care centers, anywhere women

2)  There are only several rules that must be followed:
    a)  Mothers Arms is a 501.c.3 nonprofit corporation
           1)  There can be no political affiliation whatsoever
                a)  This means a chapter cannot endorse nor support any political candidate or issue

     b)  No woman, regardless of race, creed or ethnic background will be discriminated against.
     c)  Chapters must adhere to the mission of Mothers Arms:

           1)  Inform, educate and support the development of self-reliant women nationwide who consider it                 a fundamental right and responsibility to protect themselves, their children and their way of life                 from human aggression and assault.

a)   Mothers Arms is pro self-defense.  Personal safety is an individual matter.  We support women in their journey to become self-reliant.  It is up to an individual to become educated and then determine the best methods and tools to utilize for their individual circumstances, within the laws of their jurisdiction.  We advocate everyone to learn gun safety, including non gun owners. 
Knowledge is power and can avert tragedy.

3)  Chapters must register with the national headquarters and be recognized prior to using the Mothers
     Arms logo.  Any unauthorized use will result in legal action.

National Coordinator Liaison will provide a suggested monthly topic for discussion.

5)  Monthly Chapter Meetings
