The National Postpartum Awareness Week (PAW) Campaign is a commitment to engage in collective action to ensure safe pregnancy and postpartum outcomes for Black, Brown, and Indigenous women and birthing people (BIPOC); locally, nationally, and internationally. The collective members represent over 25 states from across the country who are committed to amplifying the needs and the voices of BIPOC during the 4th Trimester so that “Birthing while Black or Brown” in the US will no longer be a death sentence. Through the power of collective action, this campaign raises awareness about the inequitable and unacceptable impact of systemic and institutional racism experienced by BIPOC; especially during their pregnancy, birthing and postpartum journeys.
The Inaugural National Postpartum Awareness Week 2023 Campaign is taking place from Sunday, May 7th - Saturday, May 13th, 2023 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm EST each night. Click here to register.
Taja Lindley - creator and host of the Black Women's Dept. of Labor - will be sharing a short performance during Day 2 of the week-long events.
