Gathr hosted a Congressional screening of Finding Jen’s Voice (http://findingjennsvoice.com/request-a-screening/) in DC last month working with Congresswoman Louise Slaughter’s office. Including a presentation and discussion of the the film, the issues of partner violence towards pregnant women, and the various legislative steps that can be taken at a federal level. The film’s director Tracy Schott led the events, and she had on the panel several survivors from the film who provided compelling testimony, as well as representatives from the legal/advocacy, social welfare, OBGYN, and counseling fields. This documentary is bringing attention to the important issue of partner violence and homicide – the leading cause of death during pregnancy in the United States.
