MTO takes an active role in the Equal Voices for America’s Families Campaign.


  • No family should live in poverty
  • Prosperity and security begin with every person’s right to work in a well-paid job, to be healthy and educated and to live in a safe community.
  • Equal opportunity should lead to equal outcomes.
  • Public policies should promote everyone’s ability to reach their fullest potential and advance the common good.
  • Families should have an equal voice in shaping policies and the future of their communities.
  • Society should support family unity, encourage the healthy development of children and youth and foster respect for all people.
  • Strong families make America stronger.


  • We will work for change.
  • We will work collectively in support of families.
  • We will protect the rights and opportunities of all families.
  • We will be involved in our communities.
  • We will teach our children values and character.
  • We will support our youth.
  • We will inform others of the issues we face and what we need to do about them.
  • We will hold our elected officials accountable to the common good.
