Every election year, thousands of people of color are denied their right to vote due to tactics such as purged voter lists and voter ID laws. This year, with the COVID-19 pandemic threatening our elections, voter suppression could become even worse—unless Congress takes action.
This Junteenth (June 19th), join FCNL for a screening and discussion of:
Suppressed: The Fight to Vote
Friday, June 19, 2020
3:15 PM Pacific Time
4:15 PM Mountain Time
The short film, which depicts voter suppression in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, will start at 6:15 p.m. EDT. A panel discussion will follow immediately at 7:00 p.m. EDT, when I will be joined by policy experts to explore how Congress can ensure safety from COVID-19 while protecting the voting rights of Black and Brown communities.
If you want to watch the film in advance, and just join us for the discussion . . .
from José Santos Woss, Friends Committee on National Legislation (to be 6/19/2020)
