Black Maternal Health Crisis

Too many Black women are dying in pregnancy and childbirth. We need systemic change to end this crisis and ensure communities are healthier and more responsive to Black women’s needs.

Threats On All Fronts

Every person should have the freedom to decide if, when, and how to raise a family. But many people in the United States face limits on this freedom – especially women of color, women with disabilities or with low incomes, transgender and nonbinary people, and those who are multiply marginalized. They face threats on all fronts when it comes to abortion access and policies necessary to thrive.


The National Partnership is on the front lines fighting for health and economic justice, reproductive rights, women’s equality, and more.
