  1. Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook Movie Watch Party »

    November 27, 2020 - 7:00pm

    With the election just two weeks away, I want to highlight the importance of voting and the barriers that many people will face in attempting to exercise that right. On 10/27, I will host a movie watch party and discussion on Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook. Here's a brief summary of the movie:

    Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, Rigged chronicles how our right to vote is being undercut by a decade of dirty tricks - including the partisan use of gerrymandering and voter purges, and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court. The film captures real-time voter purges in North Carolina and voter intimidation in Texas. Click here to watch the trailer.

    I will be using My Circle TV to host the watch party, which is a platform similar to Netflix Party that will allow us to watch the movie simultaneously with a chatroom. There is no subscription or account needed to use this platform; all you will need is an internet connection.

    Following the movie, I will host a brief discussion via Zoom starting at 8:30 PM. Check your email for a link from Justin Hodge (hodjusti@umich.edu) for more details.

    This invitation is open to our entire school community. I hope that many students, staff, faculty, and alumni will come together for the discussion on this very important topic. I will send all of this information again prior to the event so you have the links readily available.

    In the meantime, I want to direct you to several other useful resources:
