Friday | 7/12/2019 | 7:00 PM
Our Lady of the Lake Church
8900 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA

"Rigged" speaks to the weakening of democracy in America via voter suppression. The film makes the case that beginning with the election of our first black President, conservative political forces have turned with renewed vigor to ways of winnowing the electorate of people of color, the economically stressed, and the young. The suppression playbook is replete with technique: polling-place ID …

Sunday | 7/21/2019 | 6:00 PM
Magic Lantern
25 W Main Street #125, Spokane, WA

The 13th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution abolished slavery. But it also included a provision many people don’t know about and that is what this film brings to view. “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist.” That exception justifies the use of forced labor as …
