Formerly known as MOFAS: Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Exciting News
from MOFAS

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).

Why PR%F

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.

Why Alliance?

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.

What's Next?

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.

Policy Work

Now’s the Time to Make Your Voice Heard #FASDmatters

Your phone calls and emails really make a difference. There are pieces of legislation that would help the FASD community and legislators need to hear from you to know how important these issues are.

Send an email to the Chairman Dean and Representative MacDonald and let them know how important it is to include $540,000 each year for FASD prevention grants. This funding will help expand services for pregnant women who are struggling with addiction issues.

Help Get Paraprofessionals in Our Schools Trained on FASD and Other Disabilities!

We have an opportunity to make significant progress in supporting students with an FASD in their schools. Legislators need to hear from the FASD community about how this bill will impact families with children on the FASD spectrum. Please take the time to make these calls or send emails. When our elected representatives know that there is a strong and mighty team of advocates who will continue to stand up for these issues, they will listen.
