Voter suppression has become one of the biggest dangers of American elections. During the 2018 midterm elections, millions of voters experienced suppression ranging from voter purges, to poll closures, to long lines of over four hours, to strict voter ID issues that disproportionately block Brown and Black citizens from their constitutional right to vote.
For the past several months, Brave New Films has been on the ground in Georgia talking with and interviewing voters as well as experts on this issue. We have been working with Fair Fight Action, which was founded by Stacey Abrams, as well as the NAACP, the Brennan Center, the ACLU and many grassroots organizations. The result is an emotionally gripping look at Georgia’s citizens that also lays out compelling and irrefutable evidence of voter suppression.
Here is a first look at “Suppressed: The True Story of Georgia’s 2018 Election.” Watch the teaser below and sign up to be the first to see the full film (which will be about 30 minutes):
Together, we can make changes to the current system and allow every vote to count.
