Lilith Fund and Medical Students for Choice at the University of Texas at Austin present a screening of the film JACKSON. All proceeds benefit these organizations.
Abortion remains legal in the United States but anti-abortion efforts have succeeded in making it virtually inaccessible in some places and in the Deep South, often unthinkable. At one time Mississippi had fourteen abortion clinics. Now only one remains. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access.
Set against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America.
Join us for a special screening featuring a Q&A with a local abortion provider and others immediately to follow. To watch the trailer and learn more about the film, visit jacksonthefilm.com.
