While we don't proclaim to be experts on a wide variety of topics,
we are experts in our lives.

No topic is ever off the table, or shall we say, couch.
And this is way more than talk.

September 27, 2017, our dear friend died while giving birth to her daughter. Out of the seven of us, she was the only one who did not choose a career in healthcare. Despite our experience, we had no idea that women of color are up to 4 times more likely to die during childbirth.
To us, that was unacceptable.
If we--healthcare executives--didn't know about maternal mortality in the 21st century, we bet others were just as clueless.
We had to act.
Joining then Congressmen Joe Kennedy's coalition to combat maternal mortality validated the lack of awareness within communities of color.
Enter THE PINK COUCH.
We are a platform dedicated to having uncomfortable conversations on the comfort of a couch. We spotlight those topics that do not rise to the level of mainstream importance simply due to body parts and the color of one's skin. Since inception, we've spotlighted uncomfortable topics such as human trafficking, suicide, mental health, relationships, covid, racism, bullying, and sexual harassment.
Our goal is simple. If we can change the mindset of just one person per conversation, we not only honor our dear friend, but help save lives. To date, we are batting 1000!
We aren't celebrities.
We aren't athletes.
We're not even entertainers.
We don't claim to be experts.
Nor do we have all the answers.
We're just everyday people like you with a few stories to tell.
