[Cancelled] Shifting the Conversation: Black Voices Matter- Honoring the Stories & Lived Experiences of Black Birth Workers & Community
Share this event:


Due to the personal and professional impacts of the recent surge of Covid-19 cases, we are cancelling the upcoming conference this Thursday, August 26th. We are in discussions on how to offer this important and impactful content in the near future, such as through purchasing pre-recorded content or offering the conference at a different time.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated and continue to diligently wear a mask in accordance with the Governor's mandate. Masking and vaccines protect you, your family, and the community- we are in this together. You can find vaccines at https://vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov/

Thank you to our front-line workers supporting parents and their babies in hospitals, clinics and peoples homes. We have an enormous amount of gratitude for your exhausting work and your service to the community is invaluable.

Be well and take care of yourselves and one another.
