The outreach to support television broadcasts of the Trilogy: WHEN ABORTION WAS ILLEGAL, FROM DANGER to DIGNITY, and THE FRAGILE PROMISE of CHOICE has gone well. We completed one round of broadcast outreach, and will be doing another round of outreach in January, 2000.  PBS, Cable Access TV and other event dates throughout 2000 will be announced on our web site.
