Last month, Families of Color Seattle (FOCS) held its Community Dialogue 4: Anti-Racist Birthing and Reproductive Justice, which brought together 70 attendees to build community and connect families of color to birthing professionals from King County and to share birthing options and resources.
Birth workers facilitated small group discussions on topics including: how to become a birth worker of color, midwifery and doula services, LGBTQ families, learning about fertility options and healing and resilience through loss and trauma.
The event keynote speaker was Tara Mudaliar. Panelists were Emi Yamasaki McLaughlin, Camie Jae Goldhammer, Grace Uomoto, Marquita Straus, Rafael/a Luna-Pizano, and Penny Simkin. (end)
