The Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) is a national network of Black women-led organizations and multi-disciplinary professionals who work to ensure that all Black Mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy. BMMA honors the work and historical contributions of black women’s leadership within their communities and values the need to amplify this work on a national scale. The alliance is composed of existing organizations and individuals whose work is deeply rooted in reproductive justice, birth justice, and human rights frameworks.
Unfortunately, Black women are three to four times more likely to experience a pregnancy-related death than white women. However, these deaths are preventable! In order to secure a future in which all Black Mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive throughout their lives—including their reproductive lives—we must take a step back from the numbers and reach into Black Mamas who can best speak to how to realize this vision.
BMMA is celebrating and centering Black Mamas and birthing people—We recognize, celebrate, and support those who care for and mother our families and communities whether they have given birth or not.
Our 2023 theme is, “Our Bodies Belong to Us: Restoring Black Autonomy and Joy!” , which centers Black women’s scholarship, maternity care work, and advocacy across the full spectrum of sexual, maternal, and reproductive health care, services, programs, and initiatives.
Be a part of the movement to advance Black Maternal Health, Rights, and Justice! Your gift will help fund our work to ensure Black mamas thrive before, during, and after pregnancy. Thank you for your support!
