The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix Chapter of Medical Students for Choice presents a screening of the documentary film Young Lakota. This screening is part of the Reel Reproductive Justice film series sponsored by Chicken & Egg Pictures. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers, Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt.

Young Lakota follows the journey of Sunny Clifford, a Lakota woman who leaves college to return to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota with a dream to change the world around her. Her activist awakening begins when Cecelia Fire Thunder, the first female president of the Oglala Lakota nation, defies a South Dakota law banning abortion by threatening to build a clinic for all women on the reservation, under sovereign law. In the subsequent political storm, Sunny, her twin sister Serena, and their neighbor Brandon Ferguson make choices that define who they are, and what kind of adults they will become.
