About this event

We are in a maternal health crisis in the United States. Our country has the highest rates of maternal mortality in the industrialized world. Women are twice as likely to die from complications of pregnancy or childbirth in the U.S. than in Canada or the United Kingdom. For Black women, especially, the risk is infuriatingly, heartbreakingly, unforgivably high. Three to Four times higher than white women. 80% of these deaths are preventable. This is the crisis.

The 4thU Artivists' Spring benefit production will be Sacred Wombs: Honoring Marginalized Birthing Bodies, an original play by the 4thU Artivists' curating committee. This production will highlight original birth stories and true experiences with discrimination in the hospital system, featuring prominent voices from the reproductive justice movement.

Tickets are offered on a sliding scale as needed.
