Black Maternal Health Equity Campaign Social Media Toolkit

The Perinatal Equity Initiatives (PEI) of Riverside and San Bernardino counties have partnered to launch a maternal health equity campaign to increase awareness of the growing number of maternal and infant mortality in the Black community.

The campaign’s theme is Rallying Around Sisters: Redefining and Strengthening the Village, intentionally chosen to highlight the importance of community in combating the alarming statistics related to Black maternal and infant mortality.

Black Maternal Health Week Campaign

The Black Mamas Matter Alliance invites you to sponsor our fifth annual national Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW22) campaign, taking place on April 11 - 17. Founded and led by the BMMA, BMHW is a week of awareness, activism, and community building that serves to amplify the voices of Black Mamas, and center the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements.

The #BMHW22 social media toolkit is now live! In this toolkit, you will find key messaging, resources, and shareable graphics for promotion across your digital and social media channels. You can download the toolkit by clicking the button below.
