Meaningful Movies: Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight to Vote
Tuesday, September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In September, Meaningful Movies Bellevue will be screening its first film of the 2022-2023 season. We will be screening Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight To Vote (2022) from Brave New Films. Suppressed and Sabotaged is a powerful documentary about the growing threat of voter suppression and election sabotage to our 2022 midterm elections. In 2021, 19 states passed 34 new voter laws following the Big Lie of the 2020 election. The film focuses on this recent wave of voter suppression and subversion laws being enacted in states, and how the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp provides a case study for understanding today’s voter suppression laws across the country.
A northwest organizer from Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) will talk with us immediately after the film, so grab a snack and get ready for a full two-hour event! This family-friendly screening will inspire you to get involved and write postcards for ROV. See you at the movies!
