NO MÁS BEBÉS (No More Babies)
Special guest: Director Renee Tajima-Peña
In NO MAS BEBES, Oscar® nominated Director Renee Tajima-Peña reveals the story of Mexican immigrant mothers who were pushed into sterilizations while giving birth at Los Angeles County Hospital during the 1960s and '70s. Alongside an intrepid, 26-year-old Chicana lawyer and a young, whistle-blowing doctor, the mothers mounted a landmark civil rights lawsuit that is seminal to the movement for reproductive justice.
