Sister District Bronx/Westchester with the Social Justice Committee at First Unitarian Society of Westchester, Concerned Families of Westchester, Indivisible White Plains, and Indivisible Scarsdale invite you to join us for a screening of Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a powerful 40-minute documentary about voter suppression in Georgia.
The film covers Stacey Abrams’ fight to become the first Black female governor in the U.S, and the many challenges that face Georgians, including 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.
A discussion will follow about how we as New Yorkers can take meaningful action to support efforts around the country to fight voter suppression. Attendees will also be able to write postcards to engage voters in Florida.
