Hi Kate:
Did you happen to see this article? It's got a lot of possible leads. The author works at Rise Magazine. I get lots of great content from them about racial trauma, systemic oppression, and how women of color are particularly vulnerable and unsafe when it comes to the medical system and the child welfare system. 

Dr. Renee Boynton Jarrett of Vital Village does presentations on structural oppression and works with parents as a community organizer. She's also a pediatrician and I don't know if she focuses on moms in the prenatal or perinatal period but she might be able to help.

We have posted on these topics, and those and the comments might provide leads. We also have a resource center which might have some leads. Finally, there is a Women's and People of Color Speakers Initiative on FB where you can also post this question if you need more leads.  

There's not enough on this important topic. I hope when this event happens, you share about it here so we can attend and/or maybe even write about it as a blog post to help create more resources.

Cissy, thank you so much.  I am pulling together a Trauma Informed Panel to talk about the prenatal and perinatal period.  I have 4 speakers so far who know about survival states, and the impact of the mother's experience and the baby's experiences of stress during pregnancy, and birth trauma.  I would like someone who can speak about the cultural and societal traumatic imprints in our system for women of color.  We need to increase our cultural competency here.  This is a paying position for a 1 hour talk.  

I would like to submit myself. I am interested depending on the timing of the event. I am a certified nurse-midwife by training, but have focused exclusively on stress, trauma, resilience for the last decade. I've developed a resilience building framework that centers intersectionality through an anti-oppression lens. I have been implementing it with pregnant and parent adolescents of color in the LA area for the last couple of years. I gave the closing plenary for last year's LA-based Maternal Mental Health Now diversity and disparity conference. I regularly lecture and consult on trauma-informed issues through a cultural humility and social justice perspective. http://lumostransforms.com/team/nkem-ndefo/ Feel free to contact me at nkem@lumostransforms.com
