Black birth workers, nurses, midwives and obstetricians came together in 2018-2019 and developed the ACTT Curriculum to be used by community members - pregnant and not pregnant - to take control of their healthcare. ACTT stands for

* Trust Your Body

ACTT is the powerful self affirming reminder of the steps to be taken to claim person centered respectful healthcare and make one’s voice heard.
