This summer, Kansans locked arms and we managed to BLOCK the “Value Them Both” amendment, which would have led to a huge increase in the number of Black and Brown mothers dying in childbirth. The amendment would have been an injustice in terms of racial equity and loss of personal autonomy.
Even after blocking the amendment, the fight isn’t over. Join us as we organize to rid Kansas of reproductive oppression.– The Kansas Birth Justice Action Team
