Come join us as we continue to consider Democracy and the right to vote. Saturday, November 2 at 4 PM. Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a new documentary 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. 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. After the 40 minute film, there is time for discussion of the issues and what we can to take action. Great seats, scintillating conversation and hot popcorn.
