Free documentary: "Suppressed" - with new voting machine demonstration

Neighborhood Planing Unit S and State Senator Nan Orrock are pleased to announce a free screening of the the documentary "Suppressed: The Fight To Vote".

From the film's website:
Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, the new documentary by Robert Greenwald (Director of Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Making A Killing: Guns, Greed, & the NRA) 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. Suppressed: The Fight to Vote features experts, poll watchers and everyday Georgians speaking to the reality of voter suppression and the threat it poses in 2020. 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.
In addition to the documentary, there will be a demonstration of Georgia's new voting machines on the premises.

This event will be held on Saturday, March 7, 1pm, at VICARS, 8383 Cascade Ave, 30311. Come on out!

Light refreshments will be served.
