Community Engagement, Advocacy, & Policy Committee


The Community Engagement, Advocacy, and Policy Committee is dedicated to outreach and education surrounding maternal health. We aim to create and strengthen relationships with community partners through collaborative efforts to support the physical and emotional well-being of Black women where existing societal structures fail to do so. Our hope is that we can support Black mothers who are disproportionately affected by reproductive health disparities in the US and worldwide. We strive to stay informed on current state and national legislation regarding Black maternal health and to educate the general public, with an end goal in improving relevant legislative policy. We are committed to building a supportive and informed community with the objective to reduce severe maternal morbidity and mortality among Black women.
