Elephant Circle

Inspired by how elephants give birth in the wild, Elephant Circle believes every person, family, and organization deserves a circle of support.

Elephant Circle provides birth justice capacity-building strategies centered on tackling systems of power and oppression and offers expertise in health systems and legal systems as they relate to the perinatal period.

Our state allies can call on Elephant Circle to:

Provide personalized and experience-based learning opportunities—combined with actionable and grounded tools—on movement building.

Elephant Circle can provide training on using coalition, networks, campaigns, and interdisciplinary work to advance the work of birth justice locally and and at the state level.

Provide strategy and guidance on policy and advocacy rooted in community power.

Elephant Circle can help advocates better understand the use of design justice, organizing, and community-based lenses in policy advocacy work.

Help advocates pursue and support the expansion of community-based perinatal services.

Elephant Circle can work with advocates on building and sustaining community-owned and operated birth centers.

Elephant Circle has also provided broader overviews on involving community in policy advocacy for the wider Alliance network and can work with state advocates to provide similar presentations in their states and communities.
