Ashoka Fellow
United States
Fellow Since 2007
    This description of Kathryn Hall-Trujillo's work was prepared when Kathryn Hall-Trujillo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
    In America, the country with the highest infant mortality rate of the industrialized world, black babies are more than twice as likely as white babies to die before their first birthday. Kathryn Hall-Trujillo is changing that. Through the Birthing Project, she is building a social support system that will allow black women to support each other for healthier babies and healthier lives.
