About This Event

Exclusive early-access screening of the film The Abortion Talks: A Documentary, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. Please read the full event description for information about the documentary.

The Abortion Talks follows the murder trial of John Salvi—and the story of six women – 3 supporting the pro-life movement and 3 supporting the pro-choice movement – who sought to ensure that it would never happen again.

These courageous leaders risked their personal safety and professional lives to meet secretly for six years under the guidance of Essential Partners co-founder Laura R. Chasin and mediator Susan Podziba.

The experience would forever change how they speak to and about each other. They would begin to engage in more cross-partisan efforts. And although they continued to disagree, together they successfully prevented future violence.
