BLACK LIVES MATTER
We stand in solidarity.
The lives of Black women and men are being affected by senseless killings across the country. We support reform that will ensure justice and the safety of Black lives, not only in this country, but in all countries. Black Lives Matter should not only be a temporary statement, hashtag, or trend on social media, but a rally cry for change. We, like many other agencies across the nation are calling for reform in the justice system, calling for the safety of Black Lives as they maneuver through, and exist in society, and for the same respect that is given to more “privileged” races. We mourn for the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and so many others, and demand swift justice for those who committed these senseless murders. Let their tragedies not stop at protests and rage, but let it ignite a spark in the Black community to come together, demand change, and be catalysts for future generations.
Pregnant During The Pandemic?
COVID-19 has changed the way of life for us, but not enough attention is paid to those of us who will be bringing new lives into this world.
The pandemic running wild through this country has not only altered our day to day activities, but has also changed the plans that we may have had for our pregnancy. This peer-led support group will offer a space for us to touch on the subject of impending pregnancies and deliveries, and what that looks like with the current climate of the country as it relates to the COVID-19 precautions and restrictions.
