Demand Postpartum Progress MAKE IT RIGHT

381 Signatures Goal: 500

Postpartum Progress has a history of causing harm toward Black women and women of color. It is time for accountability. We demand that the board execute one of the following options as a means of demonstrating their commitment to change. We stand united as mental health professionals, activists, writers, and survivors of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. We DEMAND Postpartum Progress make it right!

Option 1: Remove CEO from non-profit and remove board who have failed to hold her accountable over multiples instances. Hire new CEO after new board, that is reflective of the community of maternal mental health [i.e. intersectional and inclusive], is established.

Option 2: Dissolve the non-profit that was built for white women that has a legacy of continued harm against women of color. Use all liquid assets to pay reparations to the staff/volunteers (of which there is a list) that were harmed, fund the Mental Health in Color scholarship recipients who are losing their scholarships because of said harm, invest the remainder of money into organizations that center the lives of Black women in the maternal mental heath realm that are Black led.
