Birth Justice Ep. 8 – Albany Birth Justice Storytelling Project

HMM’s Catherine Rafferty is joined by members of the Albany Birth Justice Storytelling Project based at University at Albany. Today we meet Dr. Rajani Bhatia, faculty sponsor, Nikia Tillman, co-chair of BirthNet and community sponsor, Chloe Anne Blaise, project listener, and Destiny Bender, storyteller. The Albany Birth Justice Storytelling Project is participatory action research that combines photo-voice narrative and transformative storytelling to collect qualitative data on the experience of Black birthing people from Albany who are impacted by racial inequities in birth outcomes.
