Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, RIGGED takes a rigorous look at voter suppression and sparks discussion on the actions needed to protect our democracy. Shot principally during the 2016 election, the film tracks a systematic, decade-long effort to suppress votes at scale and reverse the growing demographic tide of new, young, and non-white voters who helped elect President Barack Obama in 2008.

Mac Heller, Executive Producer of Rigged;
Denise Lieberman, Director of Advancement Project’s Power in Democracy Program;
Nadine Johnson, Executive Director of the ACLU of Kansas
