Birth in Color Fundraiser

Nonprofit Birth in Color RVA will conduct a Gala and Silent Auction on November 11, their
fifth birthday, at the Hippodrome Theater, in Richmond, to highlight other small and local
businesses in Virginia and raise the funds to grow through 2024.

Birth in Color is committed to defending all aspects of reproductive justice, ensuring that people
and families have the resources to make healthy decisions about their bodies and can safely
parent their children. They support the community via doula support, policy and advocacy.

The organization started in 2018 and prompted some of the first serious discussions about Black
maternal health in the Richmond community and around Virginia. Founder and Executive
Director Kenda Sutton-EL’s great-grandmother was a successful midwife. History shows that
Black women are more likely to die during pregnancy, childbirth or postpartum than any other
demographic in the U.S.

Location: 528 N. 2nd St., Richmond. Get tickets at For more
