Aftershock (Women's History Month!)

3/24 UPDATE:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Tonya Lewis Lee will no longer be joining for tonight's screening and post-film Q&A for Aftershock. We apologize for the inconvenience but still hope to see you at the cinema tonight!

Following the deaths of two young women due to childbirth complications, two bereaved families galvanize activists, birth-workers and physicians to reckon with one of the most pressing American crises today: the US maternal health crisis.
