Description: A history of medical racism has removed Black, Indigenous, Queer, Trans, and People of Color from the personal agency to generate and co-create health-centered solutions within our public and private medical systems. Mamatoto Village invites you and your people to the most dignified future where all of us have the resources to safely participate within and alongside health institutions to rectify a history of harm that manifests as risks and adverse health conditions. Participants will review the overlapping tenets of racial justice and self-advocacy to promote personal and institutional investment in culturally congruent healthcare models during the perinatal period and throughout the lifespan.
Theme(s): Expansive Birth Options, Mental Health, Reproductive Healthcare Needs, Respectful and Anti-Racist Maternal Care
