Maternal mortality is a public health crisis in the United States and racial disparities threaten Black lives at a rate 3-4 times higher than their white neighbors.
It’s time to end the crisis. Together, we can save our mothers.
The Chicago Collaborative for Maternal Health is a broad coalition that will build awareness, foster partnerships, prioritize the expertise of families with lived experiences, and drive quality of care. In July 2022, we launched The Gathering Campaign focused on Black maternal health. We invite you to participate in the campaign. See details here!
