The Black Coalition for Safe Motherhood offers interactive community based advocacy education.” The Advocacy Toolkit & Practice (ACTT) uses a set of self- affirming, and potentially lifesaving, steps to take during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. ACTT Workshops are interactive community programs for Black birthing families and those who support them.
ACTT stands for:
Ask Questions until You Understand the Answers
Claim Your Space – Physical and Mental
Trust Your Body
Tell Your Story
ACTT Workshops are small gatherings in which pregnant and non-pregnant people practice amplifying their voices in medical settings, to take charge of their care, or to support loved ones or clients to do so.
