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.

Panelists include:
California State Assembly Majority Leader Toni Atkins
Nan Aron, President Alliance for Justice
Samara Azam-Yu, Executive Director, ACCESS Women's Health Justice
Rebecca Bond, Political Director, CREDO
Phyllida Burlingame, Reproductive Justice Policy Director, ACLU of Northern California
Nayantara Mehta, Senior Counsel, Alliance for Justice
