Event description

Description

2016 was the first presidential election since the Supreme Court weakened the Voting Rights Act, and reports have emerged from numerous states regarding an insufficient number of polling centers, reduced hours, ID laws, and other restrictions that have disproportionately affected minorities. Join us as we celebrate MLK Day with the film Freedom On My Mind, a Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner and Academy Award-nominated documentary focusing on the struggle for voting rights in Mississippi from 1961-1964.

We'll be joined by speaker Trevon Mayers from Common Cause New York, a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy by promoting equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all, and empowering all people to make their voices heard in the political process. Before joining Common Cause, Trevon worked for Community Catalyst as an advocate for health equity through comprehensive healthcare reform. He has also worked extensively with researchers and educators to develop strategic policy interventions for economically disadvantaged and historically marginalized communities.


Dir. Connie Field, Marilyn Mulford. 1994. 105 min.

Conscientious Projections spotlights films that address topics of social and political significance. In addition to a screening of the film, academics, journalists and activists will join us to discuss relevant issues and provoke a discussion of what each of us can do to protect our rights.
