The National Board of the Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law invites you to a special film screening to kick off our first National Leadership Forum series. From the producers of the documentary RBG comes the film The Fight, chronicling a team of ACLU lawyers battling for civil rights at a defining moment in American history.

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, The Fight celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles.

As we look forward to welcoming Susan Herman, President of the ACLU at the first installment of the Coalition's 2020 National Leadership Forum on October 22, we recommend this film to anyone interested in the ACLU's work, and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting these important battles.

The political views expressed in the film are those of the film’s producers. Provision of access to the film shall not be taken as an endorsement or adoption of those views.
