Beyoncé and Serena Williams shared their near death experiences due to pregnancy complications. They are not alone. Black women—no matter their socio-economic status or geographic location—face near death experiences or worse.  In the United States, Black women are three times more likely to die than their White peers.

On Tuesday, August 10th at 1PM, Advocates for Children and Youth will host the webinar, Vital Statistics: Birth Outcomes and Disparities.  Panelists will share legislative, academic, and community approaches to address this public health crisis.
