OCEANSIDE– Screening of No Más Bebés and panel discussion with Laura Jimenez (California Latinas for Reproductive Justice), Caro Hurtado (Madrigal 10 Plaintiff) and Virginia Espino (Co-Producer). No Más Bebés (documentary) tells the story of Mexican immigrant mothers who were forcibly or unknowingly sterilized while giving birth at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the 1960s and 1970s. Represented by a young Chicana lawyer, the mothers stood up to injustice by suing the county, state, and US government. (2015, dir. Renee Tajima-Peña, 79 min.) No Más Bebés was supported in part by California Humanities through the California Documentary Project Grant Program. To learn more about this grant program, please visit our webpage here.
