During Black Maternal Health week (April 11-17), Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest will host an in-person movie screening of the film Aftershock—a true story of two families who come together to advocate for policy and legislative action after their family members die shortly after giving birth. This film invites viewers to think critically and learn more about the intersection between reproductive justice, Black maternal health, and advocacy.

This event will take place on Wednesday, April 12 at 5:30pm in San Diego. We will be joined by staff, supporters, and community partners engaged in birth justice work. After the film, we will have a panel discussion with the San Diego Community Birth Center and doulas from For the Village to learn more about how they support families in San Diego County and are working to improve birth outcomes for those disproportionately harmed by medical racism and neglect. 

There will be snacks, drinks, and lots of swag to give away. At this event, the San Diego Birth Center will also be collecting donations for family planning and baby items– such as baby blankets (new or gently used), diapers, baby wipes, and hand pumps. 

Please note: all participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in our in-person event. To RSVP, click here: bit.ly/aftershockmoviescreening. The address will be provided upon RSVP. We look forward to watching this film together and having an important discussion around the disproportionate rates of maternal mortality for Black families, while learning how to advance the work birth justice advocates are leading.
