Change we seek


We aim to decrease the mortality rate of Black babies and mothers & improve their health throughout the State of Delaware.

We seek to understand the intersectionality of being a Black Woman by examining maternal health care of Black Women who identify with the following groups: Disabled, Mentally Ill, Immigrant, homelessness, HIV/AIDS, Domestic Violence Victim, LGBTQ, Incarcerated, Teen Mother, and Addiction.

Meetings are held in-person and through a video conference call to make it easier for all to participate.
