The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware will present a free public film screening of “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote” at 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 3, at UUSD, 30486 Lewes-Georgetown Highway, Lewes. There will be a discussion following the film.
Produced by Robert Greenwald, “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote” explores voter suppression in Georgia during the 2018 midterm elections, including polling place closures, long wait times to vote, voter poll list purges, and lost absentee ballots.
Mac Goekler, co-chair of UUSD’s Social & Environmental Justice Committee and a former lead voting judge in Ohio, said, “We must always be vigilant to protect our right to vote. Even when it may be easy for some people to vote, it might be very difficult for others. We need to work together to make voting accessible to all.”
UUSD is a welcoming and progressive spiritual community with a mission to nurture spiritual growth, embrace diversity, work for justice, and strive for a loving world. For more information, go to www.uussd.org or contact Mac and Susan Goekler at SocialJustice@uussd.org.
