It’s important to elevate Black Mamas’ voices and perspectives around issues that impact them. Black Mamas are best situated to solve the challenges in their communities. Join the Black Mamas Matter Alliance to amplify effective maternal health policies and solutions for Black mamas as part of the 4th Annual Black Maternal Health Week, April 11-17 #BMHW21
Black Mamas claiming their power, resilience, and liberation is an opportunity to think about improving maternal health disparities without fear, blame, or shame. We must recognize the strengths of Black Mamas—their motherhood, scholarship, leadership, and research—if we truly hope to end the maternal health crisis. One step to do that?
