End: Sunday, August 18, 2019 7:30 PM

Swing Left Greater Boston invites you to the first of a series of documentary films on modern voter suppression, election integrity and the power of citizen action.

Capturing the Flag - an Award-Winning Documentary about Voter Suppression

As the 2016 National Election unfolds around them, a diverse team of charismatic voter protection volunteers travel from New York City to Fayetteville, North Carolina, where they learn that their skills at the polls - years in the making - are no match for the insidious game of modern-day voter suppression. NEW! Laverne Berry, the executive producer, will be on hand to answer questions about the film.

You’ll also have a chance to meet Aisha Dew, an organizer working on voter turnout for the September 10th special election in North Carolina’s 9th District. Voter suppression is personal for Aisha Dew. She is looking forward to meeting everyone and to watch this important film about her home state.

Please RSVP as soon as possible as space is limited. There is no admission fee. Donations to defray event costs are gratefully accepted.
