- Dr. Aisha Nyandoro will provide her expertise in leading the Magnolia Mother’s Trust, the longest-running cash transfer program in the U.S. since the 1960s and 70s, providing $1,000 a month in unrestricted cash to Black moms in subsidized housing in Jackson, Mississippi.
- Dr. Zea Malawa will share the research, thinking, and plans for the Abundant Birth Project, which begins cash payments to Black and Pacific Islander pregnant women and new mothers beginning this summer in San Francisco, California.
