Black Mamas Matter Alliance
The Black Mamas Matter Alliance will host the Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute (BMHC) on December 7-9, 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Inaugural Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute, founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance, will be the premiere assembly for Black women, clinicians, professionals, advocates, and other stakeholders working to improve maternal health using the birth justice, reproductive justice, and human rights frameworks. It will offer a national space for learning, rich discussions, and mobilization to transform Black Maternal Health, Rights, and Justice.
The Conference and Training Institute meets a national need for a forum dedicated to Black Maternal Health and Black people working to improve our outcomes. To date, discussions about Black Maternal Health have been carved into existing reproductive, maternal, and public health conferences where there is little space for meaningful dialogue and limited framing on health equity and reproductive justice. The Black Mamas Matter Alliance has created that space in the Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute and will center Black Mamas voices and experiences in all activities.
Content during the Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute will be segmented into five tracks: Policy, Care, Research, Culture Shift, and Special Topics.
