Screening || Suppressed: The Fight To Vote

  • Terrazas Branch, Austin Public Library 1105 East Cesar Chavez Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

Join us as we gather for an evening to take in the film, Suppressed: The Fight To Vote.

This new documentary by Robert Greenwald weaves together personal stories from voters across the state of Georgia to paint an undeniable picture of voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election.

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
