With the highest maternal mortality ratio in the developed world, the U.S. ranks poorly on measures of maternal health, and the United States is one of the few countries where maternal mortality is on the rise. The current crisis in maternal health disproportionately impacts women of color. This talk will explore how reproductive rights organizations are leveraging human rights principles and strategies to improve health policy and outcomes locally, and nationally, and the connection to global advocacy.
RSVP is recommended via Eventbrite. This event is free and open to the public.
