Battleground

Q&A with Catherine Lederer-Plaskett, President and CEO of WCLA – Choice Matters and Elizabeth Zimmerman, Chair of the Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic Action Fund

Battleground is an urgent and timely window into the intersection of abortion and politics in America, following three women who lead formidable anti-abortion organizations to witness the enormous influence they wield. As the nation faces the end of Roe, the film also depicts those on the front lines of the fierce fight to maintain access.

After the Q&A, please join us upstairs for light refreshments to continue the conversation and network.

In Partnership with Planned Parenthood and Choice Matters.
