As we continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic and contemplate future challenges, it has never been more important to make sure every talented student has access to a world class science, technology, engineering, arts, and math education.
Since co-founding the Black Maternal Health Caucus in 2019, Congresswoman Alma Adams has been at the forefront of the fight for equitable health care for Black birthing persons. 2020 saw historic advances in public awareness and policy proposals, including the introduction of the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and Rep. Lauren Underwood.
During the 116th Congress, Representative Adams was a tireless advocate for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), as well as a consistent voice on equity issues in education.
Rep. Adams is fighting to address the Black Maternal Health Crisis in Congress. H.R. 6144, the Kira Johnson Act, gained 13 additional Cosponsors this week.
“This is why we serve in Congress,” said Congresswoman Adams. “My staff and I have worked tirelessly for a whole-of-government response to this unprecedented crisis. Members of Team Adams in Washington and Charlotte have worked countless hours to connect constituents with the resources they need to weather the storm. I introduced and cosponsored legislation to help our economy recover and put financial assistance directly in the hands of North Carolinians. We still have a long way to go to recover from this crisis, but know that I am fighting every day to help Charlotte and Mecklenburg County residents recover.”
