In the past, the Davis Sisters have walked in honor of our mothers, both heavenly and earthly. This year, we are walking in honor of all black moms and babies in the US.
FACT: The US has the worst maternal mortality rate of all developed countries.
FACT: If you’re black, the chance of you dying before, during or after childbirth is double that of your white counter parts.
FACT: Black babies die at an alarmingly higher rate, 2-3x’s before their first birthday.
Recently, we have all had some of our closest friends announce their pregnancy. So we want to honor these black women for growing the future. Honor them for taking care of their bodies. Honor them for facing the world everyday. And Honor them for radiating Black Mama Magic!
