Safe and respectful maternity care is a fundamental human right, and we strive to engage in efforts that will lead to long-lasting health improvements for every mother, everywhere. Join us today.
Maternal health advocacy can take many forms: contacting your elected officials, educating your community, hosting a town hall or even sharing your story. With so many ways to make an impact, it can be overwhelming to know where to start or what advocacy tactic would best fit your unique skills and motivation.
That’s why we’ve just released our Advocacy Toolkit, an interactive guide to help give shape to your maternal health advocacy. Whatever your advocacy journey looks like, we hope this guide serves and inspires you. Because, right now, it is more urgent than ever before that we pass transformative legislation, support community-led organizations and raise awareness about the state of maternal health.
We’ve seen unprecedented commitment from policymakers across the United States to address maternal health and birth justice through bills, statements of support, and hearings. Nevertheless, there’s still much more to do to get key policies across the finish line.
