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.
MOFAS live! is a series of educational talks to raise awareness of FASD and engage in global conversation about the impact this disability has on our society as a whole, our communities and our families. All MOFAS live! talks are streamed live and are free.
This is a forum to not only raise awareness of disability caused by prenatal alcohol exposure, but also explore the intersection between FASD and all the systems it touches — our health care system, schools, the justice system, employment, housing, and social services. Our goal is to give a voice and a face to those families who live with this disability every day, and help educate professionals in all those systems, on how they can work toward more successful outcomes for families and individuals on the FASD spectrum. This is an opportunity to hear their journeys, their challenges, their hopes, and their dreams. And most importantly, it is a forum for action.
You may watch the live stream broadcasts on CTV 15 for individuals residing in Arden Hills, Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada, Mounds View, New Brighton, North Oaks, and Saint Anthony.
