In the U.S., the CDC reported that Black women experience maternal mortality two to three times higher than that of white women. The estimated national maternal mortality rate in the United States is about 17 per 100,000 live births––but it is about 43 per 100,000 live births for Black women.
Birthing Justice tells the story of the crisis faced by Black mothers and their children and the solutions needed to transform the maternal care system. Join us for a panel discussion with Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell, Allyson Felix, Dr. Elaine Batchlor, and Domonique DiPrima.
