Green Table Talk–Protecting Our First Environment: Tackling the Maternal Health Crisis

April 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Since white supremacists initiated one of the most vile acts of human trafficking and kidnapping during the transatlantic slave trade, Black births have been under siege. As April reflects a national focus on Black Maternal Health, this panel will feature environmental justice activists, community organizers and policy strategists who work to save Black mamas and Black babies.
