Black Maternal Health Week is a week of awareness, activism, and community building aimed at amplifying the voices of Black Mamas, and centering the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements. BMHW is held annually in April, this year April 11 – 17, during National Minority Health Month and was founded by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance. The BMMA collectively works toward a future where ALL Black Mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive throughout their lives—including in their reproductive years. #BMHW22
