Trill Moms is a global brand that seeks to support the modern mother by engaging women in authenticity and truth. We are cultivating a sisterhood of women with a desire to disrupt generational norms and re-define motherhood on our own terms. We provide a platform for women and gender non-conforming people to speak openly without judgement. We denounce patriarchy, racism, sexism, homophobia, and all other biases that prevent mothers from standing in their fullness. Trill Moms uplifts the lived experiences of all Trill Ass Mamas, and we unapologetically center the narratives of Black mothers. Black women and children in the U.S. die at rates astronomically higher than any other group of people, and they continue throughout their life to face a unique and contrived set of circumstances. Our mission is to disrupt these disparities, improve the quality of life for mothers, and raise well rounded, conscious children.
