Oakland, United States
I currently serve my community as a committed new and online media communications professional and advocate working within the reproductive justice movement. Here I create visibility for women of color and families on the margins who have strategically been left out of the socio-political debate on reproductive health and rights.
I execute research in the area of Black women’s maternal health with the Black Women’s Birthing Justice Collective. We intend to challenge medical violence implemented by medical professionals and decrease disproportionate maternal mortality within the African diaspora. Birthing Justice — saving our Lives is slated for print in Spring 2014
My areas of scholarly and pedagogical interest are structural and institutional racism in urbanism, sociological implications of disproportionate maternal health outcomes, and Black feminist theory.
