Tanay Lynn Harris is the Founder and Creative Director of Mommy Up! An online and local meet-up space that seeks to empower mothers to flourish. After years of working for some of the countries leading non-profits and faith-based organizations, dealing with civil and human rights, Tanay found herself in a new realm as mother. She believes in the importance of working with and empowering mothers, and believes that strengthening mothers creates more sustainable communities.

Tanay is also a consultant who works with non-profits, faith based and grassroots organizations to expand their work in creating sustainable change in communities. Tanay has a proven track record of commitment to a myriad of human rights and social justice issues, both nationally and internationally.

Tanay is a community organizer who has leveraged support and helped local leaders in both Ferguson and Baltimore during unrest to ensure people's voices were uplifted and amplified and their rights were protected. Tanay believes that local community members are experts about the holistic and sustainable change needed in their own communities.

Tanay has worked on some of the nation's leading high-profiled legal cases, from capital punishment, life without parole, juvenile justice, voting rights to education. Tanay believes in parents being their most whole selves, and allowing that to manifest into our children, families and the larger community. It is through motherhood that she has understood the bigger implications of what it means to truly be present and to work diligently to create a better, more moral world for today and future generations.
