Birthing Justice Documentary Screening
January 20 @ 6:00 pm
BIRTHING JUSTICE is a feature length documentary discussing the issues fueling the maternal health crisis within the African American community and advocating for best practices to enhance birthing equity for all women, especially Black women. Our filmmakers explore this national epidemic in four regions— Washington, D.C., Augusta, GA, several areas in Missouri, and California, interviewing those affected by current policies, i.e., birthing individuals and healthcare professionals, as well as those, such as birthing advocates, activists and policy makers, in the forefront of advancing policy change. We believe every woman deserves a beautiful birth story.

The National Birth Equity Collaborative
The National Birth Equity Collaborative (NBEC) is a fiscally sponsored program of the Praxis Project, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Founded by Dr. Joia Crear-Perry, NBEC is one of the nation’s leading experts and an advocate for change in the Black maternal health and infant mortality crises. NBEC’s mission is to create transnational solutions that optimize Black maternal, infant, sexual, and reproductive wellbeing. We shift systems and culture through training, research, technical assistance, policy, advocacy, and community-centered collaboration.
Established in 2015, NBEC was created to combat the increasing rate of infant mortality within the most marginalized populations–Black and Brown people. A major aspect of the work has included awareness of the crises and offering actionable solutions. With the launch of its training program, NBEC began training providers and birthing facilities on ways they could be more equitable in delivering care to Black and Brown birthing people.
