Beyond Roe: Reproductive Justice Now

October 30 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

$1 – $30 Sliding scale

James Moore Theater; Masks required for this event

With the reversal of Roe v. Wade, many will experience what it means to have their reproductive rights stripped away for the first time in their lives. But for many more, oppression and restricted healthcare access has always been a reality. Join us for a special conversation that moves beyond the pro-choice versus pro-life debate, and explores the intersectionality of reproductive wellness, as part of OMCA’s latest special exhibition, Hella Feminist.

This event will feature a screening of two short films Jane, and The Pulse of Life, which explore these topics, followed by a panel discussion between community leaders who are using their platforms to further this urgent conversation.

Jane (19 mins)
The Pulse of Life (4 mins)

Moderated by filmmakers Natalija Vekic (Jane), and Jessica Jones (The Pulse of Life), the panel includes Arneta Rogers, Director of the Gender, Sexuality & Reproductive Justice program at the ACLU of Northern California, Jyesha Wren, midwife and founder of BElovedBIRTH Black Centering, and Xochitl Lopez-Ayala, Advocacy Coordinator of Access Reproductive Justice Policy.
