A Conversation with Demand to Learn
March 16, 11:00am

“You Racist, Sexist, Bigot.”
March 17, 11:00am

Featuring stories of discrimination and hope, this film was conceived and filmed in Arizona but tells truly—and sadly—American stories.

From a young black male raised in Ferguson, Missouri, to an undocumented transgender woman living and working in a state where immigrant rights are more than just a headline, each writer shares a message about their understanding of the bigotry they face daily.

“Birthright: A War Story.”

This documentary tells the stories of women across the U.S. under siege.

Every day, their ability to make their own decisions about their bodies, health, reproduction, sexuality and childbirth is under attack.
