April 11 is the beginning of Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW). BMHW is a weeklong campaign founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) to build awareness, activism, and community-building to amplify the voices, perspectives, and lived experiences of Black mothers and birthing people.   

There are several Colorado-based opportunities to engage with BMHW this year.  

  • Soul 2 Soul Sisters, COBALT, and the NAACP of the Rocky Mountains will host a kick-off webinar “Black Maternal Health: Crisis and Hope” on Tuesday, April 11, at 7 p.m. Local leading advocates for Black maternal health will offer national context of Black maternal health and lived experience in Colorado’s landscape. Register today.  
  • On Friday, April 14 at 12 p.m., join Soul 2 Soul Sisters for a mobilizing conversation about post-Roe reproductive justice efforts for Black women, femmes, and transgender people. Register today. Find more upcoming events from Soul 2 Soul Sisters here.
