What started in 2020 as a series of film and event programs addressing disparities in Black maternal healthcare culminated in the Black Birth Symposium & Initiative two years later. Already one of the country’s largest maternal and infant healthcare conferences, the Symposium convenes leading healthcare professionals and community advocates to advance interdisciplinary collaborations in maternal health.

The Initiative, founded at the end of 2022, is a burgeoning network committed to maintaining the social infrastructure necessary to support the ongoing efforts of local maternal healthcare providers and expand their work's reach to the broader community.

We dedicate ourselves daily to...

Improving and advancing the quality of life for Black children and their families through education and advocacy.

Support Our Work



As a 501(c)3, contributions support us to continue to grow our work and impact on families by increasing capacity and resourcing the expansion of our initiatives.


Our members are the backbone of our organization. Together, we are able to engage in important and effective education to achieve our mission of improving and advancing the quality of life for Black children and their families. 


We believe that our children are the promise of the future; our hope for a better tomorrow. In an effort to fulfill our mission of improving and protecting the quality of life of these children, we recruit, screen, and train volunteers to impact their lives!


We launched our "cutie featured" calendars a few years back, and since have added, conscious clothing, accessories, and other items to strike conversation around the importance of our work. Your purchase goes towards expanding our work and is a great conversation starter.
