This week's topic: Fair & Impartial Courts: How do we get there? Join us from 5-6:30pm PT for a weekly discussion about our democracy
Join Fix Democracy First and FairVote Washington for an online film screening and panel discussion on gerrymandering with Slay the Dragon on May 28, 2020 @ 6:00pm PT. We are also happy to announce Meaningful Movies Project as a co-sponsor!
A secretive, high-tech gerrymandering initiative launched 10 years ago threatens to undermine our democracy. Slay the Dragon follows everyday people as they fight to make their votes matter.
Slay the Dragon is a 2019 documentary film about gerrymandering in the United States from Participant, directed by Barak Goodman and Chris Durrance. The film follows citizens' groups as they work to end the practice of gerrymandering, which they see as undermining democracy. It features Katie Fahey, the activist who founded Voters Not Politicians and led a successful grassroots campaign to ban partisan gerrymandering in Michigan.
The event will also feature a discussion on gerrymandering reforms with:
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First, Executive Director - Moderator
Lisa Ayrault, FairVote WA, Director
Mohit Nair, FairVote WA, Partnerships Director
Alison McAffree, LWV of WA, Census & Redistricting Issues Chair
This is a FREE event, but we encourage people to support your local theaters and purchase online here.
We also plan to live stream the event on Facebook.
