The National Perinatal Task Force is participating in the 2019 Black Maternal Health Week. Join the Black Mamas Matter Alliance and the National Perinatal Task Force April 11-17, 2019 for a week of awareness raising, activism, and community building for Black Mamas!

Last year, #BlackMaternalHealthWeek reached millions of people with information about the state of Black maternal health and highlighted the critical work of Black folks improving outcomes in their communities. It also inspired federal and state policy action in support of Black Mamas! For more information, digital toolkits and listings of local events check out

The National Perinatal Task Force will also be sharing a list of local events. In the meantime, check out the work of one our wonderful Safe Spots, Restoring Our Own Through Transformation (ROOTT) and what they will be doing for #blackmaternalhealthweek.
