State Advocacy Platforms

Welcome to the our state advocacy page! March for Moms focuses on three state level initiatives: maternal mortality review committees, paid family leave, and maternal mental health legislation. The map below provides information and resources for each state as you hover the cursor over your state. We hope you familiarize yourself with the information in your area and use it to advocate for improvements in maternal health on the state level.

March for Moms prioritized three state specific topics as part of the 2018 state advocacy effort. The state legislative agenda includes Maternal Mortality Review Committees, Paid Family Leave, and Perinatal Mental Health Programs. Each state below will provide you with information about your state’s status in regard to existence of a committee to review maternal deaths, a program to address maternal mental health, and if your state provides paid family leave.
