This webinar is part of the State and Local Government Prenatal-to-Three Collaboration in Action initiative, conducted in partnership with the National League of Cities, National Association of Counties Research FoundationNational Conference of State Legislatures and the National Collaborative for Infants and Toddlers.

During the event local and state government leaders discussed strategies to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity rates, improve outcomes, and equity advancement for future generations.

Experiences in the first three years of life build the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. Yet. America’s maternal mortality rates are among the highest in the developed world. And for families of color, the odds are stacked against them as they face systemic racism and a historical lack of investment.
