U.S. Politics Movie nights and Voter Registration TONIGHT
Come watch Suppressing the Vote with Bill Moyers. The proliferation of GOP-sponsored voter ID laws - ostensibly to address a problem of voter fraud for which there is no evidence - are clearly intended to have the effect of denying the vote to swathes of Democratic supporters, including the poor, African Americans, Hispanics, young people and urbanites. These efforts to disenfranchise American voters on a scale not seen since the era of the poll tax, grandfather clauses, literacy tests, etc. are being challenged in the courts. http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-suppressing-the-vote/ We'll also watch a few other videos related to voter suppression and discuss what we can do about it.
