Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook

Monday, October 7

7:30 pm

What would happen if political operatives tried to subvert the sacred American principle of “one person, one vote?” What if they hatched and pursued that plan for years before anyone noticed what they were doing? That is the frightening tale told in this new feature documentary. Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, and shot during the chaotic 2016 election, the film identifies and unpacks a shrewd ten-part strategy to suppress the vote, from creating new barriers to voter registration, to purging American citizens from the voting rolls without notice, to new and deliberate impediments to casting a vote.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Alex Domingos, organizer with ACLU-PA’s Campaign for Smart Justice. 

Closed captioning will be available at the screening, and an ASL interpreter will be on-site during the post-film discussion.

Reversing Roe

Monday, November 4

7:30 pm

Forty-five years after it revolutionized abortion law in America, the landmark 1973 US Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade is once again at a crossroads. In their timely new documentary, filmmakers Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg present a deeply illuminating look of the state of abortion and women’s rights in America. The film offers candid and riveting interviews with key figures from both sides of the divide. Intense and unflinching in its commitment to telling the whole story, the film provides a gripping look at what’s happening on the ground in 2018. Drawing from a wealth of historical footage, it charts the period leading up to the Roe decision—and documents the opposition that has followed ever since. Regardless of where you stand on the issue of abortion, Reversing Roe is essential viewing to understand how the country got here—and where it may be going. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with ACLU-PA Legislative Associate Marianne Stein.
