    Suppressed Film Screening/GOTV Ideas Discussion - I

    suppressed.jpg

     

    This is the first in a series of screenings of the Brave New Films documentary short "Suppressed: The Fight to Vote". After the film, we will discuss the things you can do to get out the vote from home. The film is 38 minutes and the rest of the time is left for GOTV information, discussion, and Q&A. We will have more of these screening at various time to allow for people in different locations to participate.

    About the film:

    This film exposes rampant voter suppression that affected the outcome of the 2018 midterm election in Georgia and the threat it poses to our elections all across the nation in 2020. During the 2018 midterms, millions of voters experienced suppression due to voter roll purges, poll closures, long lines of over 4 hours, missing absentee ballots, and strict voter ID laws that disproportionately prevented black and brown citizens from their constitutional right to vote.

    The race in 2018 was finally decided by 54,723 votes and Suppressed reveals that basic constitutional suffrage in America remains under pressure.

    Given what is at stake in 2020, the effort to prevent people from voting will be fierce! We've been here before and we can stop it!

    Watch the trailer.
