The Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) is a Black women-led cross-sectoral alliance that centers Black mamas and birthing people to advocate, drive research, build power, and shift culture for Black maternal health, rights, and justice.
We envision a world where Black mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy.
