Helping Black moms

Santa Fe New Mexican 15 Apr 2022

On behalf of our membership as well as women of color and their families throughout our state, we wish to express our deep appreciation to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham for her proclamation of Black Maternal Health Week.

Her recognition of the many issues facing Black women during and after their pregnancy is very heartening to all of us and, we hope, enlightening for the rest of our wonderful New Mexico community.

Attention to, and an ameliorative response to, these concerns will both make our community stronger and more vibrant, and will also show the world that we, in New Mexico, are committed to doing the right things for our people.
