Raise awareness about abortion access

Host a Film Screening and Discussion

A film screening, facilitated discussion, and perhaps even a speaker, is an excellent way for NCJW members and supporters to learn more about an issue and ultimately take action for social change.

We recommend screening the film Trapped, directed by Dawn Porter, to raise educate your community about abortion access. Trapped, filmed from 2011 to 2013, tells the story of more than 300 laws meant to impede and regulate abortion providers moved through state legislatures. Southern abortion clinics were hit hardest. Trapped interviews doctors, patients, and nurses from the few remaining abortion clinics of Mississippi, Texas, and Alabama, and follows the legal battle they fought that reached the United States Supreme Court.
