The Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Poughkeepsie will screen the documentary Suppressed 2020: The Fight to Vote via Zoom on Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at 7 p.m. Suppressed 2020: The Fight to Vote by Robert Greenwald (Director of Outfoxed and Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA) is a short, powerful documentary about the growing threat of voter suppression to our 2020 election. Deeply personal accounts from voters of color across the state of Georgia reveal deliberate, widespread voter suppression in the 2018 election. Polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times and voter ID issues were in full effect again during the 2020 primaries and are ongoing across the country right now, all disproportionately affecting Black Americans and minorities from casting their ballots. Now, amidst a global health crisis, the cruel weaponization of vote-by-mail restrictions has turned the constitutional right to vote into a choice between life and death. Suppressed 2020 is a call to action against the calculated, unconstitutional and racist attacks intended to suppress the right to vote in America. Screening followed by speaker and discussion.

“Greenwald’s documentary on voter suppression should be viewed by every American.” – Sen. Harry Reid

“If you care about protecting our Democracy, if you care about protecting our right to self-governance, watch Suppressed 2020 and protect our right to vote.” – Rob Reiner
