When Pregnancy is a Death Sentence: Race and Reproductive Healthcare

March 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Studies in 2000 showed black women are two to six times more likely to die from complications of pregnancy than white women. Twenty years later, nothing has changed. Join author of “Reproductive Injustice: Racism, Pregnancy, and Premature Birth” Dana Davis as she moderates a panel with Chanel Porchia-Albert of Ancient Song Doula Services, historian Deirdre Cooper Owens, and Assistant Commissioner of NYC’s Health Department Bureau of Maternal, Infant and Reproductive Health Deborah Kaplan about racial inequality in maternal healthcare.
