February is Black History Month. We observe Black History Month as an organization dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
Our organization makes strong efforts to support the Black community, advocate for equity, and alleviate disparities among racial minorities. Our organization is proudly led by Black/African American women, and a large majority of the participants we serve in our programs are Black/African American as well. Our Healthy Moms Healthy Babies program is designed specifically for mothers that belong to a racial minority, who are disproportionately at a higher risk for infant mortality. Our Board of Directors features a Racial and Social Justice Committee, tasked to guide our involvement with racial and social justice issues, advance our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion policies and practices, and organize events designed to reach historically underserved populations.
