Amandla is the Zulu and Xhosa word meaning "power."
We dismantle structural barriers. The Amandla Group works with organizations that address the social and political determinants of health that directly impact the health of Black birthing people.
What is the root cause of this inequity? Is there a public policy that needs to change? Is public education needed on the issue? Not only do we find out, but we unite together in cross-sector collaborations to advance social justice and to dismantle structural racism that is killing Black birthing people. The Amandla Group serves for-profit and nonprofit organizations. We address the root cause and advocate for real change to eradicate the inequities.
As Founder and President, Frankie Robertson knows from personal and professional experiences the issues directly impacting the health of Black birthing people. She is a nationally recognized, respected leader in maternal and child health who is dedicated to eliminating health inequities for Black birthing people.
