See the award-winning documentary, No Más Bebés. This film tells the story of a small group of women who sued county doctors, the state, and the U.S. Government after they were sterilized while giving birth at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the late 1960s and early 1970s. This became a landmark event in reproductive justice. After the showing, there will be a conversation with the film’s producer, Virginia Espino and consultant, Professor Elena Gutierrez of the University of Illinois, Chicago.

Our Goal includes promoting research to challenge the boundaries of disciplinary specialization and culture area studies, exploring the connections throughout the social, cultural, and economic landscape of the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspective and redirecting and redefining the study of Latin America from a broadly hemispheric viewpoint.
