Campaign Story

Research shows us that when it comes to fertility, black women are struggling. A 2008 study published in the US National Library of Medicine found that 48% of black women reported infertility, while only 31% of white women did. The often sub-par medical care that black women receive lead to mismanagement of conditions like endometriosis that can cause infertility. In addition to healthcare issues and increased infertility rates, women of color also have less access to fertility treatment. The Department of Health and Human Services shows that just 8% of black women have received fertility care. As a woman of color who has heard my community’s plight, I want to make a change.

Together, we can increase awareness and access to fertility treatments in the black community by raising funds for the Gift of Parenthood. The Gift of Parenthood is a non-profit charity that provides financial assistance to those struggling with infertility. Their founder, a woman of color with endometriosis, and their commitment to diversity inspire me, and I hope it inspires you too. To help me support this organization, I kindly ask you to consider donating today.
