Black Mamas Matter: Black Maternal Health Week, April 11-17

The United States is the only country where maternal mortality rates are on the rise, and black women are 3-4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related issues than white women. The Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) is a Black women-led cross-sectoral alliance stepping up to put forward solutions to this issue that is impacting our communities in a big way. Take a look at their toolkit for advocates and consider joining the cause during the week of April 11-17.
