University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on December 10th at 4:00 PM for a panel discussion about the documentary Belly of the Beast. The panel, moderated by Dr. Jennifer James, will feature the film’s director, Erika Cohn, and stars of the documentary, Kelli Dillon and Courtney Hooks. You can register for the panel discussion here, and registrants will receive a link to the documentary one week prior to the panel discussion. The suggested donation site for this panel and film screening is California Coalition of Women Prisoners (CCWP).

Belly of the Beast follows “an unlikely duo who discover a pattern of illegal sterilizations in women’s prisons and wage a near impossible battle against the Department of Corrections. Filmed over seven years with extraordinary access and intimate accounts from currently and formerly incarcerated people, Belly of the Beast exposes modern-day eugenics and reproductive injustice in California prisons.”

This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
