We are a group of midwives & birth workers, founded in March of 2012 at the CPM Symposium in Warrenton, VA, who are working to deepen our understanding of and take action to dismantle institutional racism and oppression in midwifery. We welcome those interested in working toward and learning about anti-racism and anti-oppression in midwifery to join us. Joining our Facebook group is the current best way to get connected and stay up to date. If you don’t use Facebook, you can leave a specific comment here and we will get you connected to the group in another way.
- Planning and delivering anti-racism workshops in state organizations and at national conferences
- Providing resources and information via this website
- Designing a framework for NARM’s new “cultural competency” requirement that requires anti-racism and anti-oppression training
- Researching, compiling, and creating scholarships and other funding opportunities for students and midwives of color
We invite all interested midwives and students to join us in transforming midwifery toward health equity for all birthing families and racial justice in our profession.
