In collaboration with the Mid-Missouri Black Doula Collective (MMBDC) and the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH), Ragtag Film Society is facilitating a Birthing Justice screening series across the state of Missouri. Each Birthing Justice screening will be followed by a community conversation moderated by Erica Dickson of MMBDC and guided by local experts. There will also be a collection of resources for birthing people and those interested in joining advocacy efforts in their communities available at the events.
