Screening of the Film, "Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight to Vote"

Sabotage is Happening Right Here in the "Gold Standard of Voting" State of COLORADO!

Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight to Vote exposes tactics used to manipulate election results, including new voter laws passed in 2021. Since the original debuted in 2019, Suppressed and its annual renditions have been screened over 2,100 times in classrooms, theaters, living rooms, and virtual spaces across the world. The film has been updated this year to offer a clear view of the current state of voting rights and ensure readiness ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. 

Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight To Vote (2022) by Robert Greenwald (Director of Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Making A Killing: Guns Greed and the NRA) is a powerful documentary about the growing threat of voter suppression and election sabotage to our 2022 miderm 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 blueprint for today’s voter suppression laws across the country. 

Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight To Vote now includes perspectives from voters in Arizona, Florida, Texas, and Georgia that highlight how these new laws will affect their constitutional right to vote. Suppression tactics covered in the film inlcude: Registration hurdles;Polling place closures;Voter purges; Missing absentee ballots; Extreme wait times at polling locations; Exact match disqualifications;New vote by mail limitations; Changes to ballot collection and drop off and more. Voter suppression laws disproportionately affect American Students, Senior Citizens, Black, Indigenous, Latine, and People of Color from casting their ballots. Suppressed and Sabotaged 2022 is a call to action against the calculated, unconstitutional and racist attacks intended to suppress the right to vote in America.
