PA Black Maternal Health Caucus Biography


The Pa. Black Maternal Health Caucus was formed in 2023 with state Reps. Morgan Cephas, D-Philadelphia, Gina H. Curry, D-Delaware, and La’Tasha D. Mayes, D-Allegheny serving as co-chairs.


Building on the momentum of legislative victories and the increasing need for attention to maternal mortality and morbidity issues, particularly amongst Black families, the caucus intends to boldly address the disturbing trends of Black maternal mortality and morbidity in our Commonwealth through strategic, intersectional legislation and policy; create a collaborative, representative and action-oriented legislative and policy space for Pennsylvania legislators, advocates and stakeholders; introduce, advance and pass the Pennsylvania MOMNIBUS – a legislative package making critical investments and policy changes to improve maternal health outcomes in Pennsylvania.
