The National Partnership for Women & Families is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to make life better for women and families.





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
