Take Action on Maternal Mortality
The profound story of Charles Johnson and his family exemplify the tragic conditions of giving birth in America.
Charles Johnson along with many other individuals and over 40 organizations joined with March for Moms, and are on a mission. WE are now asking for you to help with a CALL TO ACTION, to engage with YOUR US Representatives and request co-sponsorship to establish Maternal Mortality Review Committees in EVERY state.
Women deserve better, and we need YOUR help to get attention from Congress. Fight the fight with us! Change is coming! Respectfully demand your Representatives support HR. 1318 and S. 1112.
We are providing an easy platform to send a pre-written letter that can also be personalized. You will also find links to their Congressional emails.
Are you ready to ADD YOUR VOICE to the cause? We are encouraging EACH and EVERY ONE OF YOU to contact your Senator and Representative – just CLICK THE BUTTON below and fill out a little information to send our pre-written letter (or customize it yourself) to your Congresspeople!
