ICTC IS NOW NAABB

ICTC is now NAABB! We are in the process of transitioning the organization, and all marketing over to NAABB so you may continue to see the older branding. Not to worry, we are officially operating as NAABB, effective immediately. We anticipate the transition to NAABB to be complete by the end of 2018. Thanks for your patience!

OUR VISION:

To bring forth a world in which Black women and persons achieve their full birthing potential and thrive during the childbearing year.

OUR PURPOSE

1.

Combat the effects of structural racism on Black maternal-infant health through advocacy, research, educational programming, activism and policy change.

2.

Work to equip birth workers (doulas, midwives, nurses, and doctors) and maternity institutions with the practical tools and education they need to improve outcomes for Black women and persons.

3.

Develop and support innovative models of care that are sensitive to the cultural and social needs of Black families.

4.

Partner with organizations that are connected to and can help advance our vision.

OUR GOAL:

To transform the national maternity system to advance the well-being of, and gain equity for, Black women and persons in the US. NAABB harnesses the wisdom and birth traditions from Africa and the African diaspora to achieve this goal.
