Film Premiere: Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, 6p, First AME Church, 2270 S Harvard Blvd, LA 90018, free. Voter suppression is one of the biggest dangers to US elections. During 2018, millions experienced suppression due to voter roll purges, poll closures, long lines, missing absentee ballots, and voter ID laws that disproportionately prevented Brown and Black citizens from voting. Georgia was ground zero in 2018. GA Secretary of State Brian Kemp refused to step down from overseeing elections while he was a candidate for Governor. The race became a neck and neck battle against Stacey Abrams, who would have been the first female black Governor. Robert Greenwald (director of Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Making A Killing: Guns, Greed, & the NRA) weaves together personal stories to paint an undeniable picture of voter suppression. 2020 is coming and we must fight to protect this fundamental right – #FightToVote! Sign up to host a screening with your group, faith community or school to educate others, spark discussion and, most importantly, take action. Brave New Films will provide hosts with a free copy of the film and a discussion and action guide to help you structure your screening.
