Lack of reproductive health care is a leading cause of death and disease among refugee and displaced women of reproductive age. Grace Under Fire is a powerful and inspiring documentary focused on promoting and improving access to life-saving reproductive health care in the war-torn eastern provinces of Democratic Republic of Congo.Next Thursday, June 3rd, join us and the Astarte Project at the Landmark E Street Theater (Washington, DC) for a screening of the film and a discussion with Grace Kodindo, the film’s protagonist, along with Astarte’s local partner, Clarence Massaquoi, and the International Rescue Committee’s Babou Toure. The discussion will focus on the need for comprehensive reproductive health care in conflict settings.
This event will be open to the public, so bring your friends and family. Tickets will be $5 at the door, and all proceeds and donations will go to the Astarte Project.
