Postpartum Justice Summit 2019

We are in a crisis.
With U.S. black maternal mortality and morbidity risks worsening while other nations are experiencing improvements, we are in need of a paradigm shift now, more than ever. The Postpartum Justice Summit, organized by the Museum of the African Diaspora in partnership with UC Berkeley’s Mothers to Mothers Project, will bring together the Bay Area community to learn from and engage with some of the leading thinkers, doers, and community organizers in the maternal health field. As a community, we will envision our future and the fearlessness it will take to confront the sexism, racism, individualism, and profit-making that perpetuate maternal deaths. This groundbreaking event will feature panels and breakout sessions lead by experts and community participants in the fields of research, policy-making, storytelling, women empowerment, and postpartum traditions.
