The Interfaith Summit on Maternal Health, presented by Circle Up: United Methodist Women for Moms and hosted virtually by FUMC Austin, informed and empowered attendees to use their voices of faith to advocate for Texas moms.

This two-hour program opened our eyes to the statistical impact of maternal mortality as well as the deeply personal human impact of pregnancy-related deaths or near deaths.The afternoon centered on a moderated discussion featuring a panel of experts that represented the multifaceted nature of the maternal health crisis and closed with a plan of action for people of faith to use their voice to amplify solutions and advocate for change.
