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.

12 Days of Mocktails

12 days of mocktails

MOFAS would like to wish you Happy Holidays! As you plan your get-togethers and celebrations, consider some of these festive, alcohol-free mocktails that can be enjoyed by all of your guests, including pregnant people, children, and those who choose not to drink alcohol.

These mocktails are a fun and delicious way to practice 049 — zero alcohol for nine months of pregnancy. There is no known safe amount of alcohol use during pregnancy, and the safest choice you can make is not to drink any alcohol while you are pregnant.

Once you’ve made the mocktail(s) of your choice, upload a picture to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and use #MOFASmocktails to share your creation.
