Community Conversations for Black Brazilian Immigrant Mothers and Pregnant People
Community Conversations for Black Brazilian Immigrant Mothers and Pregnant People aims to be a safe, informative, and welcoming space that creates a support network for pregnant people and Black mothers who mothered most of the time during the pandemic.
The project is free, online, and open to Black Brazilian immigrant mothers in the United States. It will take place virtually on Sundays from 10 am to 12 pm EST, from February through April 2022.
Spaces are limited and meetings will be facilitated by:
- Flávia Barbosa: Bachelor in Psychology from Universidade Estácio de Sá (Brazil), Post-Graduate in Human Resources from Universidade Federal Fluminense, Co-founder of Kilomba Collective and Mother of Imani (15 months)
- Lisley Siqueira: Doula (Labor and Puerperio), Creator of Eventide Birth and Psychologist.
Kilomba Collective is a collective dedicated to centering the perspective and realities of Black Brazilian people, especially Black women and girls in their multiple identities, in the international scenario, connecting with other Black women's movements in the African Diaspora. We do so by developing advocacy, community building, and international solidarity actions on issues around social justice, gender equality, and human rights.
