NAPW at the 2018 Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute in Atlanta, GA

December 19, 2018

NAPW Senior Staff Attorney Aarin Williams and Research & Program Associate Victoria St. Clair attended Black Mamas Matter Alliance’s inaugural Black Maternal Health Conference and Training Institute in Atlanta, GA! The 2018 Conference and Training Institute focused on “Empowering the Movement for Black Maternal Health, Rights, and Justice”. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with and learn from maternal health care providers, advocates and activists around the country fighting for Black maternal health, rights and justice.

NAPW had an informational table at this year’s Conference and Training Institute, and our staff has been invited to contribute a blog post expanding on NAPW’s work ensuring the civil and human rights of pregnant people and how it intersects with the fight for Black maternal health, rights and justice. Stay tuned and check back on our website for that post in the near future—we will post it on our online channels when it becomes available.
