Highlighting the interplay of maternal health and community in the Bronx with a bilingual program emphasizing childbirth education, reproductive literacy, and lifelong sexual health
- These Waters Run Deep
Carmen is a fierce advocate for reproductive health and justice, specifically to improve care for women of color — especially for Black women who are twelve times more likely to die in childbirth than white women in New York City — and increase young people's access to sexual education. Because care is rooted in community, Carmen frames the maternal health conversation as a responsibility for all New Yorkers.
