Kick-off Film Screening

City of West Hollywood Council Chamber

625 N. San Vicente Blvd, West Hollywood, 90069

7:00pm to 10:00pm

"Trapped" by award-winning filmmaker Dawn Porter, a startling film about what remains of a woman's right to choose and how U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open. Since 2010, 288 laws regulating abortion providers have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts. As the U.S. Supreme Court decides in 2016 whether individual states may essentially outlaw abortion (Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt), "Trapped" follows clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front-lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.

A Q&A with June Ayers, featured in the film and owner and the director of Reproductive Health Services in Montgomery, Alabama, Rebecca Griffin, Assistant Director, California Programs, NARAL Pro-Choice California, Janette Robinson Flint, Executive Director, Black Women for Wellness, and Laura Jimenez, Executive Director, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice will follow the screening and be moderated by Maria Hall Brown from PBS SoCal. The kick-off event and screening is co-sponsored by PBS SoCal, Independent Lens and Women in Film Los Angeles. For full details and to RSVP, visit www.wehowlc.org
