Since the repeal of Roe v. Wade, which protected a woman’s right to have an abortion for nearly 50 years, most abortions are now illegal in 13 states, and counting. Attacks on women’s health are increasing, due in large part to the rise of disinformation in digital space and the decline in local news. This confluence of events should serve as a stark reminder to the philanthropic world of the growing vulnerability of abortion rights—and our democracy—in America. Join Media Impact Funders on the evening of Tuesday, July 18, for Clips and Conversation featuring "Battleground" and Rewire News Group to unpack the current abortion narrative in America and its consequences for our democracy, and to explore how funders can step up support for a science-based counternarrative around abortion and women's health.
The full Battleground film is available to stream in advance of this session on Starz, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, and Google Play.
