Children’s Action Alliance — AZ lawmakers can reduce maternal mortality

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) birth parents are dying during or within a year after pregnancy at an alarming – and rising – rate. Research shows this isn’t due to a lack of education or understanding among parents, but that it is tied to systemic discrimination and insufficient access to care. For low-income and BIPOC parents – particularly those who are uninsured, underinsured, undocumented, or otherwise underrepresented in health care – the link between access to affordable care and pregnancy-related death is clear.

Arizona Supreme Court Ruling on Prop 208 – Invest in Ed

Arizona Supreme Court Ruling on Prop 208 – Invest in Ed

(Aug. 19), the Arizona Supreme Court issued a ruling that is a major setback for Proposition 208 – Invest in Ed. The measure was passed by 1.7 million voters last November and will generate the revenue schools need to raise teacher salaries and address the teacher shortage crisis, lower class sizes, hire aides and counselors, and expand career and technical education.
