ACLU of Colorado to Host Screening and Discussion — 5/5/2015

In 1965, after the dramatic marches in Selma led to passage of the Voting Rights Act, many concluded that the roadblocks restricting millions of Americans from casting ballots had been permanently removed. Fifty years later, however, the battle over voting rights has been reignited.

On May 5, 2015 — Denver’s Election Day — the ACLU of Colorado will screen Electoral Dysfunction, a nationally acclaimed documentary in which political humorist Mo Rocca takes a road trip to discover how voting works – and doesn’t work – in America.

This event is open to the public and will be held at the Sie FilmCenter at 7:30 pm. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers David Deschamps and Bennett Singer, who directed the film with Leslie D. Farrell; they will be joined by several local voting experts.  Tickets are $5 and can be reserved at the following link; the ticket price includes a $5 credit for food or drink:
