BWWAP regularly launches campaigns aimed at elevating key challenges Black women face. Our approach is often multi-pronged, tackling these issues through community organizing, policy advocacy, electoral changes, and media content.

CA Momnibus Act

For decades, Black mothers and babies in our state have experienced far higher death rates than mothers and babies of other races. Lots of factors contribute to this, and BWWAP has spent years advocating for them to be addressed. In 2021, we were proud to be a lead co-sponsor of the CA Momnibus Act, which re-imagines what maternal health can look like in our state. Right after this landmark legislation was signed, we got to work spreading the word in our communities so that real women and families know about and can access their new benefits.
