#BMHW22: Climate Justice is Reproductive Justice

April 12, 2022

Excessive heat, air pollution, a lack of clean water supply to communities, and many other instances of environmental racism are having a direct impact on pregnant Black women and birthing people. This Black Maternal Health Week panel hosted by National Birth Equity Collaborative looks at the issue of climate justice as a reproductive justice issue and explores how climate change and environmental racism impacts Black mamas, their families, and communities around the globe.
