Black Maternal Health Week is April 11–17. This week is intended to build activism, community, and awareness to help end racial disparities, reduce maternal mortality rates, and give all families the respect, rights, and resources to have healthy pregnancies and births.

In the United States, Black women are still at high risk of dying during childbirth, and two to three times more likely than white women to die of pregnancy-related complications.

If you’re ready to say enough is enough and you want to make an impact, we encourage you to write to your elected officials and ask them to support the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021.
