Free film, Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook
Join us September 24 at the Normal Theater for a free showing of the documentary Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook. The film will begin at 7 p.m.
Rigged is a 2019 documentary that examines how, since 2008, right-wing groups have worked with certain states, to make it harder to vote, particularly for minority groups and young people. Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, and shot during the chaotic 2016 election, the film identifies and unpacks a shrewd ten-part strategy developed by Republicans to suppress votes that would be cast against them.
Professor Emeritus Bob Bradley will facilitate a discussion following the film.
This event is co-sponsored by the American Democracy Project.
