Support the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act!

Take action:

Our country is experiencing a maternal and reproductive health care crisis. The United States, the richest nation in the world, holds the grim distinction of the highest maternal death rate amongst developed nations, with Black moms dying of pregnancy complications at three to four times the rate of their white counterparts. These disparities have only worsened with abortion bans and restrictions enacted around the country since 2022. Congressional leaders in the Black Maternal Health Caucus are working to combat this devastating public health disparity through the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2023 (HR 3305), the necessary next step to protect all women and birthing people in this country. 

Led by Reps. Lauren Underwood (D-IL) and Alma Adams (D-NC) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), this package is composed of thirteen individual bills that address every aspect of the maternal health crisis by making critical investments in social determinants of health and digital tools like telehealth, providing funding to community-based organizations, growing and diversifying the perinatal workforce, and so much more. 

Speak out for Black mothers and Black babies by urging your lawmakers to support the Black Maternal Health Momnibus today!
