About the Event
Online Registration is no longer available. Please sign in at the door.
We will examine the politics surrounding reproductive justice, health care human rights and minority women. Our program will feature a showing of the documentary film We Always Resist: Trust Black Women which will be followed by a discussion of the film and related issues with Angela Sutton, Senior Health Policy Associate for the Black Women’s Health Imperative and local activist and radio personality Nkenge Toure', host of "All Our Voices" on WPFW.
The film is about the now infamous Atlanta billboard campaign aimed at convincing minority women that abortion is genocide, even declaring that “Black children are an endangered species.” We Always Resist discusses the issues of racism, sexism, health care human rights and the role religious belief played on both sides of the campaign. It also highlights the efforts of the women, men and organizations in Atlanta who joined together to resist it. Although both the Atlanta billboard campaign and the more recent “Personhood Amendment” campaign in Mississippi were defeated, last week Arizona Representative Trent Franks introduced “The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011 based on the same premises with the same goals.
Free and open to the public.
