#BMHW23 Theme Revealed


It’s about that time! Coming off of yet another momentous year, the Black Mamas Matter Alliance, Inc. (BMMA) has issued the much anticipated save-the-date for its annual Black Maternal Health Week 2023 (#BMHW23) campaign, the theme for which will be, Our Bodies Belong to Us: Restoring Black Autonomy and Joy.

Founded and led by BMMA, Black Maternal Health Week is a week-long campaign held annually on April 11-17th that builds awareness, activism, and community-building​ to amplify ​the voices, perspectives and lived experiences of Black Mamas and birthing people. Since 2018, the activities and conversations hosted throughout the week have intentionally centered the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements. ​
