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. For this reason, BMMA does not have chapters. The alliance is composed of existing organizations and individuals whose work is deeply rooted in reproductive justice, birth justice, and the human rights framework.
Celebrating and Centering Black Mamas
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. Centering Black Mamas does not mean ignoring the facts of a dire reality. Instead, Centering Black Mamas is an opportunity to recognize the strengths of Black Mamas—their motherhood, scholarship, leadership, and research—and seek to further empower them in all facets of their lives.
