The profound story of Kira Johnson and her family exemplify the tragic conditions of giving birth in America. Charles Johnson and many other individuals and over 40 organizations joined with 4 Kira 4 Moms, and are on a mission.

WE are now asking for you to help with a CALL TO ACTION, to engage with YOUR US Representatives and request co-sponsorship to establish Maternal Mortality Review Committees in EVERY state.

Women deserve better, and we need YOUR help to get attention from Congress. Fight the fight with us! Change is coming! Respectfully demand your Representatives support HR. 1318 and S. 1112.

We are providing an easy platform to send a pre-written letter that can also be personalized. You will also find links to their Congressional emails.

Thank You.
