Septenber is Infant Mortality Awareness Month.
Let us gather to remember Oakland’s children who did not live to see their first birthday.
And let us learn the steps we can take as a community to make infant mortality a very rare experience!
Please bring :
food to share
a story, poem or art work in memory of a lost young one.
What we will do:
we will gather and share lunch together
we will listen to each other
share with each other
share resources and
have a moment of silence – to honor our beloved baby ancestors
and create a community of respect and support.
Who should attend:
All Oakland/ East Bay Citizens
Any one who has lost a child, via miscarriage, still birth or crib death – and loss before its first birthday.
Please wear white.
See you then!
