Take Action to Combat Voter Suppression
Thank you for joining us for BABF #UNBOUND’s Voting Rights program.
With arguably the most consequential election of our lifetime coming up, it’s more important than ever that we hear the voice of every single American. We hope this programming inspires you to take action to support voting rights, whether by protecting your own vote or helping ensure that others can vote too. There’s so much we can do, even in a time of social distancing, to combat voter suppression and make sure that the 2020 election is safe and secure for everyone.
Other useful resources appear on the Take Action page set up by Brave New Films in connection with its short documentary SUPPRESSED: THE FIGHT TO VOTE (38 minutes, viewable for free), which we’ll be sharing and discussing later in our Voting Rights series.
Finally, we recommend the books of all of our speakers in this series. You can find their most recent books on the program page for each talk. We encourage you to order from your own local independent bookstore (here’s a list for Festival partners in the Bay Area). You might also want to follow these authors on social media to keep up with their work and hear their thoughts as Voting Rights issues continue to unfold, in the upcoming 2020 election and beyond.
