Event description
Join us in Newark for a walk to bring awareness to the Black Infant Mortality Rates in NJ.

About this Event

The New Jersey Birth Justice Collective will be joining Uzazi Village on Saturday, September 21, 2019 during their 7th Annual Black Infant Mortality Awareness Walk; in an attempt to raise awareness about the Black Infant Mortality rates plaguing our local communities as well as nationally.

The New Jersey Department of Health acknowledges that black infants in New Jersey are at risk of dying at 3 times the rate of white infants. Our mission is to decrease this gap by developing evidence based solutions to partnering establishments.

The New Jersey Birth Justice Collective is a group of black led organizations who have joined forces to help enact change here in New Jersey. Our goal is to spread awareness and help to raise funds to support our initiatives across Black Infant and Maternal Health issues across New Jersey.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, September 21, 2019 as we start our walk from Newark Beth Israel (the corner of Lyons Ave and Osborne Terr) in Newark to Walk for Black Infant Mortality.

We are seeking Community Partnerships via sponsorship and donations. Here’s how:

  1. Share water, fruit and snacks to walkers along our route.
  2. Donate to receive an Infant and Maternal Health Gift from this website: http://familiesforequity.com/projects/black-infant-mortality-awareness-walk/

Powerfully,

NJ Birth Justice Collective
