Perinatal Equity Committee Mission/Vision/Goals
Our mission is to identify and challenge persistent perinatal health disparities and inequities through critical analysis of existing systems and to promote solutions rooted in inclusion and centered on the voices of those most impacted. We seek to dismantle structurally racist and oppressive systems within perinatal care in Minnesota. We will embed an equity lens for optimal health in all local and state perinatal health initiatives.
We seek to ensure that all Minnesotans have access and the ability to achieve their full, perinatal health potential regardless of age, race, national or ethnic origin, immigration status, biologic sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, communication preference, religion/religious preference, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, or proximity to health centers.
We extend gratitude to our current chairs, Arielle Skalisky and Ann Downey for providing leadership to the Equity Committee.
