Bay Area Birth Justice Fair Summer 2014. Breastfeeding, A gift for Life!

Urban Montessori Charter School 5328 Brann Street, Oakland, CA 94619

What is the goal of this edition of the Bay Area Birth Justice Fair?

Our spring fair’s focus is the raising of funds to to support the amazing work of Nurse Midwife Mary Koroma the DIrector of AAPDEP, and her courageous work in providing midwifery care and training to the women and children of Sierra Leone, Africa.

Her organization is run by Africans for Africans – and is a role model of African Independence and self empowerment.

At the same time  – this fair will address the fact the the  United States of America is number 40 in number of countries whihc lose the most mothers and babies in childbirth!  This is per Amnesty Internationals recent groundbreaking study.

Why is it that this country, which on the face of things has all the resources in the world, has such horrible mortality outcomes for all mothers?  And why is it that consistently – in all states of the union, and across socio -economic lines, African Americans lose the most mothers and babies?

This fair will address these issues – and suggest a solution!

 

Our goal is to educate, uplift, and empower all who attend.

We are looking for :

 

sponsors

exhibitors

workshop presenters

please contact us!

 

Nurse Mary Koroma the DIrector of AAPDEP-Sierra Leone will be on a fundraising tour through Europe, US, and the Caribbean from March-May 2012. If you are interested in organizing an event please contact camilla@developmentforafrica.org.

  1. We need more midwives everywhere. This type of work is a calling and if you are interested in birth…follow your heart!

  2. I would love to have a table there or be part of presenting. I am a doula, apprentice midwife, and teach pregnancy movement dance classes in the bay area!
