Suppressed: The Fight to Vote Film & Discussion
January 20, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Indivisible Mad River Valley and Lean Left Vermont are teaming up for a viewing and discussion of Suppressed: The Fight To Vote on Monday, January 20th at 6 pm at the Mountaintop Film Series at the Big Picture Theatre & Cafe in Waitsfield.
Suppressed: The Fight to Vote is a new documentary by Robert Greenwald. Through personal stories from voters across the state of Georgia, Greenwald documents how massive voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election sabotaged Stacey Abrams’ run to become the first black female governor in the United States.
This brief film is powerful, energizing, infuriating, and motivating all at once. Harwood Union High School students will facilitate a Socrates Cafe–style discussion of the problem of voter suppression following the film, stimulating ideas about how the voices of hundreds of thousands of voters were silenced in 2018 — and how they continue to be silenced as we head into the 2020 election.
