Virtual Screening of RIGGED (2019) & Campaign Kickoff! (CA48)
July 26 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
RIGGED: The Voter Suppression Playbook is an award-winning documentary that exposes the nefarious tactics used to suppress the vote and serves to spark discussion on the actions needed to protect our democracy. Shot principally during the 2016 election, the film tracks a systematic, decade-long effort to reverse the impact of the growing demographic tide of non-white and younger voters who helped elect President Barack Obama in 2008. It details a variety of voter suppression “plays,” or tactics, ranging from the purging of voting rolls and passing of new, restrictive voter ID laws to gerrymandering and voter intimidation. The film includes revealing interviews with Republican strategists detailing how the voter suppression game is played as well as cogent insights from leading voting rights advocates, law professors and Democratic strategists. It is narrated by Tony & Emmy award-winning actor, Jeffrey Wright.
Don’t miss a special introduction by Congressman Harley Rouda! Following the screening of the film, there will be a panel discussion on voting rights and voter suppression with: Executive Producer Mac Heller and more surprise guests! The evening will end with a Q&A presentation with Indivisible OC 48 Chair Aaron McCall on how you can get involved in California’s 48th District to save democracy!
After R.S.V.P-ing, attendees will receive a link to join the screening within 24 hours of the start of the event.
The webinar is broadcast using ZOOM. Having a functioning internet connection is required for participation in the screening.
