SiX is proud to partner with the Black Mamas Matter Alliance on Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW). From April 11th through April 17th, through a series of digital and community events, BMHW will uplift Black-women led entities to focus on the root causes of poor maternal health outcomes while also leaning on Black voices to drive conversation around tangible community-driven policy, programs, and solutions.

Message 1: It’s #BlackMaternalHealthWeek and time we secure a future in which all Black Mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive throughout their lives. #BlackMamasMatter #BMHW21 @SiXRepro
Message 2: Black Mamas are claiming our power, our resilience, and our liberation. The work is not done until we truly dismantle the oppressive institutions that are killing Black lives. #BMHW21 @SiXRepro
Message 3: Black women are 3 – 5 times more likely to have a maternal death than white women. This #BlackMaternalHealthWeek, let’s raise awareness of this crisis in our communities and center Black mamas to find solutions! #BMHW21 @SiXRepro
