Join DA Toronto members on April 30 at 7pm for a virtual movie night.
We are watching Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary by Robert Greenwald (Director of Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Making A Killing: Guns, Greed, & the NRA) that weaves together personal stories from voters across the state of Georgia to paint an undeniable picture of voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election where Stacey Abrams fought to become the first Black female governor in the U.S. In a race that was ultimately decided by 54,723 votes, the film exposes that the basic constitutional right to vote continues to be under siege in America. Use this link to watch the whole film.
RSVP and we will send you a link to a Zoom meeting where we can log in to chat with each other during the firm and meet up after to talk about what we've seen and what we can do to fight voter suppression and protect our right to vote.
After that, if you're up for a double feature, we are encouraging everyone to watching something a little lighter and keep the chat going. We'll watch Dick, a 1999 film about two students who wander off during a class trip to the White House. When they meet President Richard Nixon, they find themselves appointed official walkers to the First Dog, Checkers, and unofficial advisors to Tricky Dick during the Watergate scandal. It's available to rent on YouTube, GooglePlay, and Apple.
See you there!
