Black Led Community Initiatives
Since our first sale in Oct 2019, The Kitara Fund has been proud to support For the Village.
For The Village was established in January 2018 by doula and activist, Sabia C. Wade. For The Village provides doula services in San Diego County for all individuals/families with an emphasis on marginalized groups, such as people of color, LGBTQIA and low income individuals/families.
Known as "The Black Doula" Sabia is at the forefront of educating and advocating for the rights and care of the BIPOC birthing community. The Kitara Fund is honored to support Sabia's non-profit For the Village.
Racial Inequity in Birth
Kitara is committed to supporting the physical and emotional safety of all birthing people.
In the US, Black and Indigenous birthing people are 3x more likely to die than their white counterparts.
We stand with Black, Indigenous, and POC community leaders community leaders to say “No more” to these inequities and injustices. The Kitara Fund for Black Maternal Health donates 1% of all Kitara revenue to Black-led community initiatives advancing birthing rights and maternal health in disenfranchised populations.
We stand with Black, Indigenous, and POC community leaders community leaders to say “No more” to these inequities and injustices.
