Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is excited to announce a Community Conversation on Voting Rights. In 2018, Michigan voters approved significant changes to our state’s voting procedures. We would like to help you understand these changes. This is a non-partisan event. We will be screening the short film “Suppressed: The Fight To Vote.” Learn about the new procedures and have a conversation as a community. All are invited to attend. BYOB & potluck snacks. For more information, contact DRE@berrienuu.org.
Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, the new documentary by Robert Greenwald 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 – all of which disproportionately prevented many students and people of color from casting their ballots.
