Moms for America Presents South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem with the Mother of Influence Award

December 18, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Kimberly Fletcher, mother of eight and founder and president of Moms for America ( was in Washington, D.C. this past weekend to host both theMoms for America Keep Christmas rally and to present South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem the Moms for America Mother of Influence award.

“She speaks truth,” Fletcher said in her introduction of Noem. “She actually follows the science that they keep telling us we should follow and she institutes policies that are going to promote freedom and … to actually fix problems instead of creating them. We need more people who will stand up for truth, for freedom, for family and be that common sense voice that we need. Mothers like her have tremendous influence in shaping the future of the country”

Noem said her children are a “testament” of her husband’s devotion to the family and that they are her greatest accomplishment. “I tell people all the time — my legacy will be my children,” Noem said.

Noem explained that she was raised and is raising her own children to be self-sufficient. “Our job as mothers is to prepare them for life,” Noem said. “And the way that we do that is by letting them go through some hard times. Making them figure things out a little bit by themselves. Encouraging them but also making sure we’re allowing them to become those problem solvers that we need.”

“This is probably the most special reward I’ve ever received,” Noem said. “When I ran for governor it was on building strong families. It was about how South Dakota could be an example to the nation and we could do that by focusing on strong families … that really is the foundation of this country. So the fact that you would honor me in this way today means the world to me.”
