This is a follow-up event to the screening of Birthing Justice, a documentary film examining the structures and systems that determine the mortality of Black women and their babies, which was hosted in February. If you have not seen Birthing Justice and plan to attend this panel discussion, it is recommended that you view the documentary beforehand. It is available via the UVA Library.

Please register online to attend no later than April 22.
