Maternal mortality is a huge problem in the United States, especially among Black and Indigenous women. Yet many candidates for public office are not making this issue part of their platform. We want to encourage candidates to make this a part of the conversation now, while they are still running for office. You can help us by making it a part of the conversations you are having now, both in your life and online.
We have included some social media links for you to share on various sites. We encourage you to link back to heatforchange.org, and encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to do the same. Together we can turn the H.E.A.T. up on candidates and call some attention to this important issue.
Black mothers in the U.S. are dying at similar levels as mothers in developing countries. This is unacceptable and it is time for a change.
