Suppressed: The Fight to Vote - Topanga, CA

November 01, 2019 |

For November, the Topanga Peace Alliance will be having a special program featuring the new documentary Suppressed: The Fight to Vote and nationally recognized voting expert, Dr. Judy Alter in person at the Library. Dr. Judy Alter is the Director of Protect California Ballots. She is an advocate of ensuring that all the steps of our election process are observed by public citizens, especially counting the votes on our ballots.

Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, the new documentary by Robert Greenwald / Brave New Films, 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. We will also be showing other shorts between the discussions.

We will also be showing selected relevant short videos regarding the voting process in America.

Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice and a report back on our Military Opt Out drive (see schedule below).

Throughout the program, we will be having discussions regarding the challenges regarding voting today.

***Please try to bring your own bowl and a cloth napkin, so we can reduce the waste created by this event. ***

A $10 donation is requested, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Teaneck International Film Festival draws over 3,000 filmgoers each year. Films and talkbacks illustrate what TIFF is about – making untouchable topics part of everyday conversation by addressing racism, oppression, the environment, the LGBTQ community, women’s concerns, immigration -- stories of the little guy whose story is not often heard. With the theme, Activism: Making Change, the festival is an excellent starting point for fostering appreciation of differences, understanding all that we share, and encouraging efforts to help make the world a better place.

Suppressed: The Fight to Vote - Austin, TX

November 19, 2019 |

The issues Georgians faced included polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times and a host of voter ID issues.

The lessons of this film clearly go way beyond Georgia and it is through calling out modern day voter suppression tactics that we can keep working to protect our vote.

Film is about 40 minutes in length and there will be some discussion afterward plus ways to get involved in the fight for voter rights in Texas.

Space is limited in this library meeting room so we encourage you to confirm your RSVP.

Free to the public. Must RSVP to attend - txprogressiveaction@gmail.com

Hosted by the Our Vote Texas project, Texas Progressive Action Network and Common Cause Texas.
