Campaign to Save Our Mothers & Babies

Mission

 
The Campaign to Save our Moms and Babies (CSOMB) is a grassroots network of organizations and individuals who utilize a collective impact approach to address persistent racial disparities in infant and maternal health outcomes throughout Illinois by coordinating communications and events between providers and in communities, advocating for equitable budgets, legislation, and quality Maternal and Infant Health programming, and engaging in high-quality community education and outreach.
 


Vision

 
All moms and infants in Illinois will have positive health outcomes that are not determined or impacted by their race or ethnicity.


Underlying Principles:
  • Systemic and structural racism is ever-present and impacts health outcomes for moms and babies. In order to address the racial and ethnic disparities in maternal and child health, we must fight the racism that exists across all systems.
  • Every family, regardless of insurance status, deserves high-quality healthcare.

Strategic Priorities:
  • Coordinate communications and events between providers and in communities.
  • Advocate for equitable budgets, legislation, and quality maternal and infant health programming.
  • Engage in high-quality community education and outreach.
