THE PLEDGE

I pledge to:

1. Advocate for respectful and unbiased treatment of Black women by providers.

2. Spread the word about ways for Black women to receive the support they deserve to assist them in having healthy and joyous births, and for them and their child(ren) to enjoy good health.

3. Get involved, by either attending a meeting in my community, telling others about the issue, or sharing resources available at www.blackinfantsandfamilies.org
