ME TOO Movies: I Am Jane Doe

The #MeToo movement has caught fire around the world! In the lead up to the Me Too Survivors' March on November 12, we will be screening three related films at Bernie's Coffee Shop Volunteer Office. This is a mini-series in the ongoing series #ScreeningsAtBernies.
ABOUT THE FILM:
"I am Jane Doe mainly follows the stories and cases of middle school girls from Bost, a 15-year-old from Seattle, and a 13-year-old girl from St. Louis. Their suits against Backpage put them on a collision course with judges, special interest groups, and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
The film also features the attorneys involved with the various lawsuits. The lawyers hail from anywhere from a firm working out of strip mall in Washington state to Ropes & Gray, one of the oldest white-shoe law firms in the country.
I am Jane Doe also follows Congressional actions against Backpage and online human trafficking. The film features interviews from Senator Rob Portman, Senator John McCain, Senator Claire McCaskill, and Senator Heidi Heitkamp."
**This event is POT LUCK, so please try to bring a snack or beverage to share.**
