To solve the Black maternal mortality crisis, start with upending racist practices

It’s been all over the news for months: Black women in the United States are dying from complications during their pregnancies or in childbirth at alarming rates, and those deaths are preventable. Less well explored is how systemic racism and historical trauma have been at the core of what’s driven up these rates over several decades. A March 20 conference entitled The Impact of ACEs on Black Maternal Health took an in-depth look into why Black maternal mortality and complications during...

I understand that many of you are in the same situation and can understand. The book, Hope for...

It is the time to review life in a holistic way, a practice Muslims and non-Muslims alike can benefit from,...

Spiritual Abuse (Rise to Resilience blog repost)

By Leona LaForce My bio indicates that I was in the Christian church for over 30 years. The US, patriarchal, evangelical, Republican, anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ, anti-etc church.

Promoted as god’s will, of course, and supported by cherry-picked scripture. I ran up against some spiritual abuse this week...
