Focusing on equity in pregnancy, childbirth and the period after childbirth, our organizing is built on understanding and lived experience of greater systemic issues mothers experience throughout motherhood due to race, class and gender disparities. This work includes campaigns on maternal mortality/morbidity, as well as mass incarceration and police reform. Check out our factsheet to learn more about why we must address maternal mortality and morbidity in the United States.
