Where are the Women of Color?

It's been a recurring question. I've spent months thinking about how to incorporate more diversity in a meaningful way and looking for the right person or people to do it. Today, I think I've found them.

Tanashia Huff is Labor and Delivery nurse, doula, and mother of 3. Her first 2 daughters were born in the hospital, and her youngest was born at home. She's also studying to be a Certified Professional Midwife. The only catch is that she's in Florida.

The good news is there's someone else in Florida I've been wanting to catch up with--Jennie Joseph. I wrote about meeting her at the Home Birth Summit here. She's making herself and her clinic open to us. We just have to get there. Florida is a long way from northern California. I thought I was done traveling. This trip wasn't in the budget, but it keeps coming back to me. This trip needs to happen. 

To make it happen I need to raise another $2,950 to cover the travel and shooting costs. If you think this is part of the story worth telling please click here to support. If you would like to make a  tax deductible, you can donate through IDA when you click here.

The first 20 people who make a donation of $60 or more get a canvas tote with the screen printed hand drawn illustration from Marla Pedersen, "Home Sweet Home."

Our editor is working hard and I don't want to hold her up waiting for footage. Thank you for supporting!
