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.
Make your voice heard on Tuesday, February 25, 2020. Join Proof Alliance and hundreds of other FASD advocates for FASD Day at the Capitol 2020.
Advocates from across the state will gather together for training on how to be powerful FASD activists. You’ll learn strategies to help you advocate effectively and tell your personal story in a compelling way. We will also detail any proposed legislation that affects the FASD community so that you feel informed and empowered as an FASD activist. You’ll get the chance to hear directly from key legislators who we’ve invited to speak to our group exclusively.
When you register online for FASD Day at the Capitol, a Proof Alliance team member will schedule an individual appointment for you to meet with your legislators. During the training, you will receive your appointment information. Once the training concludes, we will walk over to the State Office Building and Senate Office Building where appointments will be held.
*Lunch, light snacks and assorted beverages will be provided.
Please check back soon for more information regarding the Proof Alliance legislative priorities for 2020.
