As a Kindred Partner of the Black Mamas Matter Alliance, ROOTT will host several events during the inaugural Black Maternal Health Week, April 11th- 17th.

These events are part of a coordinated national effort to raise awareness and increase advocacy for Black Mamas, their children, and families of color. In Franklin County alone, Black infant mortality rates are three times higher than white infants (15 per 1000 and 4.9 per 1000, respectively), with a largely unreported Maternal Mortality and Morbidity rate. ROOTT seeks to address the issue of these devastating health disparities informed by our collective voices in experience and evidence through Full Spectrum Doula Services, provider trainings, advocacy, community engagement and events.
