Advocacy Work

Wichita Birth Justice Society is committed to advocating for birth equity at the metropolitan, state and regional level. We continually work to raise awareness of the crisis at the grassroots level and seek to mobilize our most impacted neighborhoods in fighting for change.

On March 3th 2020, we led the first annual Day of Action for Black Parents and Babies, a state wide day of collective action to end the high rates of Black parents and babies in Kansas dying around the time of childbirth. A citywide Day of Recognition was declared by Mayor Brandon Whipple in Wichita, Kansas on March 3rd, 2020. Kansans from all around the state joined us in contacting elected representatives in support of SB42/HB2108 and in raising awareness of the crisis.
