The BBUUC Social Action Committee in collaboration with the MLK Memorial Foundation is featuring the film Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a 38 minute documentary about voter suppression during the 2018 midterm elections in Georgia.

Following the film we will have a panel discussion and opportunities for comments and questions. Our objective is to provide people with an action plan to so they can personally get involved in empowering the vote.
