On January 26th, A Better Balance joined the Mississippi Black Women’s Roundtable for their annual legislative advocacy day & press conference at the Mississippi State Capitol. Advocates urged state lawmakers to support strong babies and healthy moms by extending Medicaid coverage for new mothers to 12 months postpartum. ABB’s Policy Manager of the Southern Office spoke about why the state also urgently needs supportive workplace policies–like flexible schedules, paid leave, and access to affordable child care–to protect the health and economic security of parents and children.
