Our Village Needs Us!
Chicago Birthworks Collective has a mission to decrease birth mortality rates for black women and families. Our work has always been grounded in advocacy against implicit bias and racial disparities in health care for black and brown women and their children. Now, during this time of crisis, we are committed to expanding our Tribe to provide mama + baby essentials to all black Chicago families in need.
If you are a mama in need,
let us know -- we got you!
If you are an ally looking to make a monetary donation to provide a Love Package —
we appreciate you!
"We are encouraged by the show of downright vigor and support for Black mothers and birthing people during this time. We are committed to continuously laboring to create Love packages for black families in addition to continuing to tend to them during their reproductive cycle and beyond. We are grateful to each individual and organization for joining us in the work that heals our people."
