The Black Maternal Health Crisis in the United States
April 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT
Black mothers in the United States are four times as likely to die from maternity-related complications as white women, and these disparities have not improved in more than 30 years. This virtual session, hosted by Promise Heights, will provide insight how to make pregnancy and childbirth safer in the U.S., amplify community–driven policy, practice and systems and enhance community organizing on Black maternal health by taking action to reduce maternal mortality and reduce morbidity related to childbirth.
