1/8 A thread. Oral arguments in my racial #discrimination lawsuit against @acog @PtSafetyCouncil will be heard here in Boston on 6/25. ACOG, a non-profit which receives funding through @HHSGov & @HRSAgov grants, donations & membership fees, has employed 4 lawyers whose job it is
2/8 to suppress my voice by trying to have my case dismissed, or moved to D.C., where their headquarters are located. Last year, @acog initiated a relationship with me to develop a Patient Advisory Group and invited me to apply to become a voting member of the @PtSafetyCouncil.
3/8 I was also invited to and spoke at both their Annual Clinical Conference and their annual AIM meeting in 2019. My membership was denied shortly after I provided @acog employees with documentation that a member of the @PtSafetyCouncil was perpetuating racist ideology about
4/8 why Black women have poor health outcomes. An example of the harmful language I've endured from them since I filed...
5/8"@acog inured no benefit from Plaintiff’s presence in Massachusetts in any way. Plaintiff was not ACOG’s employee nor was she seeking to be. And she did not provide any economic or non-economic benefits directly to @acog at all." My lived experience as a Black woman who had

7/8 Please stop acting like you don't know what to do. Black men & women are dying due to racism and implicit bias while you're "still learning". There are so many ways to help Black people right in your own back yard, and across the country. Stop "liking" and sharing quotes.
8/8 Start taking action. Your silence and failure to take action is complicity, and has spoken volumes to me.
