We are caretakers. We are creatives. We are community-builders. We are doulas supporting doulas. We are born into this.
>>What is a Born into This Pop Up?
Curated by DTI, Born Into This explores social justice, entrepreneurship, technology and creativity. Centered in interdisciplinary thought, these conversations aim to make sense of the birth world’s intersections and context, as well as its relationship to our own practice as members of the field. This Pop Up will bring a piece of the Born Into This experience to your home community in an accessible and thought provoking display. Panel will be viewed from Born into This 2018 digitally and discussion will follow. ALL FUNDS FROM THIS TICKET WILL GO TO THE DTI SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR AND THE DTI TRANS HEALTH INITIATIVE.
>>What to expect:
At the Born Into This Pop Up we will gather in the evening from 6pm — 8:30pm and view TWO panels from last years conference followed by a discussion facilitated by Molly Escobar.
Panel 1: Activists and Advocates for Change featuring: Surabhi Kukke, Miriam Zoila Perez of The Radical Doula, Dawn Thompson of Improving Birth and Allison Bravo of Empower Generations.
Activism, means many things to many people. Some of us shy away from the label because we think our work is not radical enough—while some of us see practitioners of activism as angry or disrupting.
Currently, the role of activism in the birth world is up for debate. At Born Into This, we believe birth work, at its core, is a form of activism. We see anyone working toward providing more options and care for maternal and infant health as an activist.
Listen in as these activists discuss their work in big ways. They will also share their struggles, their vision and the collaborative efforts that can unite our shared purpose and ignite momentum.
Panel 2: Leading with Language with the DTI TEAM: Becky Alford, Tara Brooke, Gina Giordano, Malika Hook Muhammad, Jenny Bennett and Carmen Lane
The DTI team will discuss the purpose of inclusive terms as an organization, in the birth world and how this provides better services and care to all birthing people.
