Aftershock Black infant maternal mortality

Black babies, and those who birth them, are dying at disproportionate rates in Colorado. The reasons are varied, starting with basic access to health care, but it extends far beyond that. The Sundance Film Festival-winning documentary, "Aftershock," covers the issue of Black maternal and infant mortality. Sister-to-Sister: International Network of Professional African American Women, Inc. a Black woman’s advocacy organization based in Denver, is sponsoring a screening this Saturday, April 29.
