Narrated by actress and activist Amy Brenneman, Roe at Risk: Fighting for Reproductive Justice describes the dramatic impact of nationwide attacks on women’s constitutional rights. By sharing the stories of women’s day-to-day struggles in Mississippi and Texas, the film shows the wrenching consequences of radical anti-abortion legislation. At the same time, it documents how women and their allies are fighting back, standing up bravely against politicians who propose laws that threaten the right to reproductive freedom and justice. Following the film, an expert panel will discuss how and why California is bucking the national trend to restrict access to abortions, what lessons California can offer to advocates in other states, and how advocates for reproductive justice are expanding the conversation beyond abortion. 


           
This event is cosponsored by ACCESS Women’s Health Justice, California Coalition for Reproductive Freedom, CREDO, Equal Rights Advocates, NARAL Pro-Choice California, Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific Action Fund and National Lawyers Guild-Student Group.
