LWVGP Discusses “Rigged” with GPPL Panel

 

LWVGP was pleased to partner with the Grosse Pointe Public Library for a live discussion of the documentary Register NOW  Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook.  

What’s it about? The documentary feature chronicles how American democracy is being threatened and our vote is being undercut by a decade of dirty tricks – including the partisan use of gerrymandering and voter purges, and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court.  How did they do it? The film shows you how.
