Black Church Leaders Make Effort to Reduce Infant Mortality

Leaders from African-American churches met on Tuesday to outline efforts to promote sleep safety for infants.

As part of their efforts, leaders announced their fourth annual “Safe Sleep Sabbath” event on Sunday, Nov. 18. The event is aimed at educating the community on how to make sure babies are sleeping safely.

The acronym used is “ABC.” Babies should sleep alone, on their backs and in a crib. Leaders also emphasized that no extra blankets or toys should be kept in the crib.

Church leaders were joined on Tuesday by Dane County Executive Joe Parisi and State Representative-Elect Shelia Stubbs. Both highlighted infant mortality as an important issue in the African-American community.
