The Colorado Midwives Association recognizes the unique and long-unmet needs of birthing people of color and their families. The harsh racial disparities in maternal and infant mortality are gaining a larger public platform, but the problems are long-standing. Since midwives serve such unique populations in an often-marginalized field it is often difficult to know how we can actively improve outcomes for our clients of color and for disadvantaged communities.
Please join us as we listen to anti-oppression consultant Regan Byrd share her in-depth knowledge and experience regarding racial literacy and dialogue. We will be discussing the roots of racial bias, the consequences of implicit racism for individuals and communities of color, and how midwives in-particular can promote racial justice in every setting.
Suggested donation is $20-40 depending on your ability. CEU approval for 8 contact hours is pending. The cost for CEUs is $20
