Suppressed: The Fight to Vote - Teaneck International Film Festival

November 15, 2019 |

Distorted Democracy: The Fight Against Gerrymandering/ Suppressed: The Fight to Vote

Distorted Democracy: The Fight Against Gerrymandering is a short film directed by Juan Yepes. In our democracy, every voice should be heard, and every vote should count equally. But in North Carolina and other states across the country, politicians are choosing their voters instead of the other way around. Voters were silenced in North Carolina when politicians gerrymandered the state during the redistricting process.

The screening is sponsored by  Puffin Foundation, Ltd. and the League of Women Voters of Teaneck

Suppressed: The Fight to Vote is a short film directed by Robert Greenwald. Voter suppression has become one of the biggest dangers of American elections. During the 2018 midterm elections, millions of voters experienced suppression ranging from voter purges, to poll closures, to long lines of over 4 hours, to strict voter ID issues that disproportionately block Brown and Black citizens from their constitutional right to vote. This is an emotionally gripping look at Georgias election involving Stacey Abrams with compelling and irrefutable evidence of suppression.

The screening is sponsored by Puffin Foundation, Ltd., the League of Women Voters of Teaneck, and  Bergen County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Following the screenings, there will be a talkback with director of Distorted Democracy Juan Yepes.

BUY TICKETS

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.
