This year, the 2024 AMCHP Annual Conference falls during Black Maternal Health Week. Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW) is a week-long, annual campaign founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance and takes place April 11-17. It is a celebration and annual crescendo in the reproductive justice movement and a time of deep solidarity, creativity, visioning, and action. The co-occurrence of the AMCHP conference during Black Maternal Health Week was not intentional, and we wish we acknowledged it sooner. We will assure that AMCHP conference activities include time, space, and acknowledgement for attendees to participate in virtual events hosted by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance and partner organizations. We will maximize the opportunity presented by AMCHP 2024 and convening maternal and child health leaders from across the country to raise awareness of this critical movement, to honor Black maternal health leaders, birthing people, and families, and to make deep commitments to using our collective power to transform systems for reproductive justice and racial justice. We look forward to providing more updates on how we will celebrate Black Maternal Health Week at AMCHP 2024 through our conference newsletter and forthcoming detailed agenda.
