Join us on Friday for a FREE screening of the new documentary “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote”.
“Suppressed: The Fight to Vote” is the new documentary by Robert Greenwald (Director of Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Making A Killing: Guns, Greed, & the NRA). This film 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. The issues Georgians faced included polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times, and a host of voter ID issues – all of which disproportionately prevented many students and people of color from casting their ballots. You will see experts, poll watchers and everyday Georgians speaking to the reality of voter suppression and the threat it poses in 2020. 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.
This event is part of the UU Church’s monthly Environmental & Social Justice Film Night.
Join us to watch this riveting film, and discuss how it relates to our work here in NC this year.
