In the new short film, “Suppressed: The Fight To Vote”, Voqal grantee, Brave New Films, exposes rampant voter suppression that affected the outcome of the 2018 midterm election in Georgia and the threat it poses to elections all across the nation in 2020. 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 people of color from casting their ballots. Watch it now to discover the insidious tactics politicians use across the country to suppress the vote and stay in power.
As strong believers of an engaged and empowered public, we think it is vital that every citizen is able to exercise their right to vote. We are proud to support organizations like Brave New Films that are doing their part to ensure that this is possible.
