If you're looking for the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) you have come to the right place. We have some exciting news about our organization. We have a new name! MOFAS has officially been renamed Proof Alliance. Our mission remains the same: to prevent prenatal alcohol exposure and to improve the quality of life for people living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).
We now have the proof that prenatal alcohol exposure is a leading cause of brain injury in children. We have the proof that FASD is 100% preventable and people living with an FASD can reach 100% of their potential.
We seek to build powerful alliances with people with an FASD, their families, legislators, experts in the field, new partners, and community members to bring awareness, research, and services to this field.
Proof Alliance is rebranding, expanding, and we're moving! We have a new logo, website, and prevention campaign to help change the norms around drinking during pregnancy. And in May 2019 we will be moving to a stand-alone building. Proof Alliance commits to the people of Minnesota and we will continue to develop transformative programs to help Minnesotans impacted by FASD.
To celebrate FASD Awareness Month, during the month of September, MOFAS is inviting people from all around Minnesota to join the MOFAS Book Club and read “When Rain Hurts” by Mary Greene.
Mary adopted two toddlers from Russia in 2004. Her new book, “When Rain Hurts” (Red Hen Press) is a searing and intimate portrayal of heartache and occassional triumph as she tries to untangle the devastating effects of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) and the neglect of orphanage life.
Join us in reading this emotionally complex, fascinating, gritty, exhausting book, teeming with protective mother-energy and love. Help us bring FASD out from the shadows and create mainstream awareness for this disability, by learning and talking about it.
Books will be shipped after 9/3/13.
Then, join us for a LIVE chat with author Mary Greene on Thursday, October 3 from Noon – 1 PM (CT) to discuss the book.
