Black Mamas Matter

This workshop will explore racial disparities in maternal health through the lenses of reproductive justice, racial justice, and human rights. Presenters will introduce workshop participants to the issues at stake, and describe key events that led them to: (1) confront the normalization of Black maternal mortality and morbidity; (2) reframe maternal health as a social justice advocacy issue; and (3) build a multi-disciplinary network of leaders and stakeholders committed to change. After sharing the history and strategic decision points that have shaped their maternal health and justice work to date, presenters will invite participants to engage in an interactive brainstorming session around the challenges and opportunities of mobilizing for maternal health in our current political climate.
