Honoring Courage

This short, 10-minute film is powerful. ‘Honoring Courage: A Short History of Reproductive Health Services in California’ details the fight in the 1960s and 1970s to legalize abortion and curtail forced sterilization and takes viewers to current efforts to secure reproductive rights and justice.

This story has never before been documented on film.


Produced by CCRWF and Storefront Political Media, we were honored to work with our Advisory Committee: Black Women for Wellness, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice, NARAL Pro-Choice California, and Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, as well as the many leaders who agreed to be interviewed and filmed.
