Cambridge: Film screening on voter suppression in Georgia with guest speakers

November 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Suppressed: The Fight to Vote is the new documentary by Robert Greenwald. The film weaves together personal stories from voters across the state of Georgia to paint an undeniable picture of voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election where Stacey Abrams fought to become the first Black female governor in the U.S. The issues Georgians faced included polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times, and a host of Voter ID issues.

After the film: Two amazing guest speakers who are fighting voter suppression!

Margaret Bourdeaux, sister of Carolyn Bourdeaux, 2018 candidate for Congress in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, where voter suppression led to her narrow defeat. Carolyn is running for the seat again in 2020.

Quentin Palfrey, the 2018 Democratic nominee for Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor and Ohio Voter Protection Director for the 2008 Obama campaign. Quentin recently founded the Voter Protection Corps, a new lawyer-driven organization that is building a state-by-state playbook to combat voter suppression.
