Black Babies Awareness Month

The Equity Research Action Coalition was excited to launch the inaugural “Black Babies Awareness Month.” We want to spotlight and celebrate Black infants, families and the people and organizations that support them. This is an opportunity to draw public attention to the challenges they face and the programs and service providers that help meet their needs. The tremendous efforts of Black parents, early educators, community leaders, and other advocates should not go unnoticed—especially in times of crisis.The Equity Research Action Coalition unveiled the National Black Child Agenda, an ambitious plan that calls for actions to dismantle structural racism and systemic inequities that have negative effects on Black children’s school and life success. The agenda was co-developed with research and child development experts from the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI), the UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute and POINTS of ACCESS, LLC.
