CrescentCare’s Black Leadership Advisory Committee will be tabling at this year’s Black Birth Matters Conference! Black Birth Matters is a day-long biannual gathering dedicated to creating solutions at the intersections of birth justice, racial justice and mental health.
The event will feature a talk back with award winning journalist Linda Villarosa, author of New York Times Magazine cover story Why America’s Black Mothers and Babies Are in a Life-or-Death Crisis as well as workshops, panel discussions, art and healing focused on addressing racial disparities in maternal and infant health outcomes. Deon Haywood, Founder of Women with a Vision will be the keynote speaker. This year’s conference is focused on addressing the role that mental health plays in advancing the human right to safe and respectful maternal and reproductive health care.
CrescentCare is committed to being a safe place for pre- and post-natal care for all expecting and new mothers and their children. We hope to see you at the conference!
