Black Maternal Health Week 2021 Resources

April 10th marks the beginning of Black Maternal Health Week. The state of New Jersey is currently working to address one of the worst racial disparities in maternal care in the nation. Planned Parenthood is proud to partner with organizations dedicated to fighting systemic racism in health care throughout our state. 

Here are some resources to use in order to continue to advocate for this issue:
