Celebrate Black Maternal Health Week 2024 with SiX

Black legislators are spearheading the advancement of Black maternal health outcomes in their states. This year, Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW) will take place April 11-17th, 2023 and the theme is Our Bodies STILL Belong to Us: Reproductive Justice NOW! 

Founded by Black Mamas Matter Alliance, BMHW was created to raise awareness, inspire activism and build community support for the issues and policies impacting the health and rights of Black mothers. This week centers the work, values, and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements.
In honor of #BMHW24, SiX is uplifting state legislators across the country who are committed to supporting Black maternal health.

Show your support as a legislator in the SiX network leading the fight to improve Black maternal health outcomes and please share the following graphic and messages on social media.
