The Big

TO END PREVENTABLE STILLBIRTH

October 15th, 2022

Nationwide

23,000 children's lives are lost to potentially preventable stillbirths each year. We’re pushing empty strollers past the steps of Congress in their name.

It's time for change. Join us.

We've come together to say enough is ENOUGH.

Stillbirth steals the lives of 65 babies every single day in the US.

Many of these deaths are preventable.

These babies are our babies. We are THEIR VOICE.

And we will not be silenced.
