Film Screening: Suppressed: The Fight to Vote – Democrats Abroad Leipzig-Halle

February 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Democrats Abroad as we watch Brave New Films’ documentary short entitled “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote” (2019).

The film exposes rampant voter suppression that affected the outcome of the 2018 midterm election in Georgia and the threat it poses to our elections all across the nation in 2020.

During the 2018 midterms, millions of voters experienced suppression due to voter roll purges, poll closures, long lines of over four hours, missing absentee ballots, and strict voter ID laws that disproportionately prevented black and brown citizens from exercising their constitutional right to vote. After the film, there will be time for audience discussion and questions.

All are welcome to attend! Though not required, please RSVP here so we know how many people to expect!

Please help us out by sharing this event on Facebook. We look forward to meeting you!
