Black Babies Matter: Black Infant Mortality Awareness Walk

Thank you for joining Uzazi Village for the Black Infant Mortality Awareness Walk 2020.

The Walk for Black Infant Mortality started in Missouri to bring awareness to the issue of Black infant mortality in our community. Black infants are twice as likely to die prior to their first birthday than their White counterparts. The reasons for this tragic health inequity are varied and complex, but many deaths are preventable. Prematurity and low birth weight are the leading causes of infant death in the African- American community.

This year, we encourage you to gather your team and walk at a safe social distance in your own community on Saturday, September 19.
