National Perinatal Task Force
NPTF MEMBERSHIP STRUCTURE
Guided by fierce love for our families and communities, the National Perinatal Task Force seeks to dismantle the braid of oppression impacting communities of color. We recognize strength and abundance in the breadth of our intersectional collective in order to harness the limitless power of our lived experiences.
We believe all people have the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we care for with equitable resources to thrive in community. Furthermore, with a vision of Reproductive Justice and an equity lens, we believe in Maternal Justice, where even the most marginalized are able to birth with full human rights and self-determination, where we honor the powerful and sacred ability to create new humans, and all childbearing people receive culturally grounded, attentive, quality, loving care.
To model the world we are birthing, we use Collective Organizing to shift the paradigm of reproductive health by addressing the root causes of inequity, building collective power, and advancing liberation for all.
We transform the world via Praxis, where our collective practices as perinatal providers guide our methods for transforming the world and making social change.
In solidarity with our partners in movements for Reproductive Justice and all forms of social justice, we work in our local communities to advance Maternal Justice and collectively birth a more just and loving world.
We are building our collective power nationally by weaving together the local people power of amazing autonomous locally based maternal racial justice efforts consolidated into our NPTF national membership structure. There are multiple paths to becoming a member of the NPTF. Here are our current (4) membership categories:

Individuals/organizations that provide resources and/or funding support to the NPTF so that we may implement our strategic goals. NPTF supporters contribute resources towards the vision of birthing a just and loving world.
Individuals/organizations taking action in their community. NPTF Igniters spark collectives by building local collective efforts to launch new PSSs and/or maternal justice community organizing projects towards the vision of birthing a just and loving world.
All members are committed to the business of saving lives and are actively working to shift the paradigm of reproductive health by addressing the intersectional root causes of inequity, building collective power, and advancing social justice and liberation for all.
