Swing Left Greater Boston invites you to the first of a series of documentary films on modern voter suppression, election integrity and the power of citizen action.
As the 2016 National Election unfolds around them, a diverse team of charismatic voter protection volunteers travel from New York City to Fayetteville, North Carolina, where they learn that their skills at the polls – years in the making – are no match for the insidious game of modern-day voter suppression
Join us on Sunday, August 18th at 6pm after Activist Afternoons in Cambridge for an exclusive showing of Capturing the Flag, a film that shows what happens when ordinary citizens show up to defend our democracy. Our sponsor is Left of Center, a field readiness political defense team working to elect Democrats to Congress and stabilize our democracy.
Left of Center will also present Aisha Dew, a North Carolina organizer working on voter turnout for the September 10th special election in North Carolina’s 9th District. Voter suppression is personal for Aisha Dew. She is looking forward to meeting everyone and to watch this important film about her home state.
Please let us know you are coming as soon as possible as space is limited. There is no admission fee. Donations to defray event costs are gratefully accepted. RSVP here.
