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 the full scope of the widespread attacks on women's health, the legislative and legal contexts in which the battle is being waged, and how we can join the movement to protect the constitutional right to safe and legal abortion.
