What is Melanin Moms Natural Expo?
Did you know that black women have some of the lowest breastfeeding rates among races?
Did you know black women have TWICE the infant death mortality rates as our white counterparts?
Black men* have a 70% higher risk and Black women have a 50% greater risk of developing heart failure than White men and women.
*Between the ages of 45 and 64.
Yet most events catering to families of color are filled with foods and habits that fuel these statistics.
LET'S CHANGE THIS NARRATIVE.
As a woman of color, I see a disparity in bringing plant based eating and natural living to women and mothers of color and thus wanted to fill that much needed space.
Our mission of Melanin Moms Natural Expo is to bring plant based, healthy eating, natural and organic living to those that aren't usually exposed to it. We want to highlight other ethnicities, races and heritages as local business owners. We are exposing our community to the benefits of breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, and natural medicine.
Let's EDUCATE, MOTIVATE AND INSPIRE each other for a better chance at LIFE and PLANET.
