Join the Equal Democracy Project for a film screening of “Suppressed 2020: The Fight to Vote,” a short, powerful documentary about the growing threat of voter suppression to our 2020 election. The film is 40 minutes long, after which EDP will share resources to get involved in voter protection efforts this fall.
Please RSVP at https://forms.gle/EEGMWtfg5U88Wkvv5 . A zoom link will be sent prior to the event.
From the filmmakers: “Deeply personal accounts from voters of color across the state of Georgia reveal deliberate, widespread voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election where Stacey Abrams fought to become the first Black female governor in the U.S. Polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times and voter ID issues were in full effect again during the 2020 primaries and are on-going across the country right now, all disproportionately affecting Black Americans and minorities from casting their ballots. Now, amidst a global health crisis, the cruel weaponization of vote-by-mail restrictions has turned the constitutional right to vote into a choice between life and death. Suppressed 2020 is a call to action against the calculated, unconstitutional and racist attacks intended to suppress the right to vote in America.”
