Rigged : The Voter Suppression Playbook
Rating- PG Runtime 79 min.
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 a new feature documentary, Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook. Monique Moore, director of Community Engagement and Initiatives for the Ohio Secretary of State’s office, will give opening remarks before the film about voting in Ohio. After the film, we will host a panel discussion with guests: Andrea Cobb, president of League of Women Voters of Dayton, Tom Roberts, president of the Ohio NAACP, and Catherine Turcer, executive director of Common Cause Ohio. You will also be able to register to vote and get other information on voting in Ohio. Seating is limited, so arrive early!
