Learn about birthing access in the Austin area and support Mamas of Color Rising

Did you know Latina women are 2.5 times as likely as white women to receive late or no prenatal care?  Or that African American women are nearly four times more likely to die of pregnancy-related complications than white women?

Come Learn More!

Tuesday, November 9th, 7:00pm

Calhoun Hall, Room 100 (South Mall, off of 21st Street)

The University of Texas Chapter of Amnesty International will host a panel discussion on their new report Deadly Delivery: The Maternal Health Care Crisis in the USA. This panel will include  Mamas of Color Rising collective members who will talk about what maternal health options are available for poor women of color in Austin, and how barriers to choices in pre-natal care, labor/delivery, and post-natal care affect us and our children.  This event is FREE and children are welcome to attend.

This event is being held as a fundraiser for Mamas of Color Rising! Please join us and spread the word by forwarding this flier to your contacts!

You can also hear Mamas of Color Rising on several local radio shows talking about this event and our birth access project.  Tune in!
