About Movie:

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.

Moderator: – Judy Ancel, producer of KKFI’s Heartland Labor Forum

Panelists:

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

Rev. Dr. Cassandra Gould, Executive Director of Missouri Faith Voices

All donations will be distributed evenly between the three presenting organizations.
