Problem
Black Women are 243 percent more likely to die from pregnancy related complications than white women. This is due to the chronic stress and trauma that black women are disproportionately exposed to through out their life. They face chronic stress and trauma disproportionately due to the last(almost) 400 years of racial terrorism and oppression inflicted on them in America. Doctors are more likely to ignore the pain of black women as well.



Solution
Within the last year and a half, Representative Scott based out of Virginia, proposed a bill called the 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act, also known as H.R. 1242. This Bill plans to give out grants to black communities in America. H.R. 1242  was created to celebrate the fact that black Americans have been in America for 400 years. This bill was signed by Donald Trump.

Due to the fact that Black Women are dying from the chronic stress and  trauma, these grants should be applied to health care. I am asking people to sign this so that black women can have free unlimited access to any spa of their choice in D.C. Spa's help people heal. They help with your cardiovascular system(heart disease is the number one killer of black people), lowers blood pressure, fights against dementia, arthritis, and removes toxins from your body.  Spa's can also  help fight PTSD in black woman  because they help reduce stress, anxiety, and also help relax the mind. Healing the mind helps heal the body. Bottom line, black women are dying from stress and to alleviate stress black women deserve free unlimited access to any spa of their choice in D.C. Grants from H.R. 1242 could help make this happen. The link for the bill can be found below.
