Black Mamas Matter: Toolkit
Sustainable Development Goals: 3
- SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being
The Black Mamas Matter toolkit is a resource for advocates who are concerned about the health and well-being of black women and girls. It takes a human rights based approach to maternal health, identifying the rights of pregnant and birthing parents and the corresponding role of government to ensure safe and respectful maternal health care for all. First released in June 2016, the toolkit was produced by the Center for Reproductive Rights in partnership with members of the Black Mamas Matter Alliance.
Since this toolkit was first published in 2016, Black Mamas Matter has grown from a group of people meeting to ask tough questions about the state of Black maternal health to a national movement of stakeholders committed to changing the world so Black mamas have the rights, respect, and resources they need to have safe and healthy pregnancy outcomes. In November 2016, the Steering Committee of the Black Mamas Matter Alliance met to sketch out our vision for Black mamas, mission for the Alliance, values that underpin all our work, and goals for issues that needed priority attention.
