Northwest Bronx Indivisible has been working to transform our community into a digital one. Like almost every other organization, we have had to adapt our mission to our new world of social distancing. It’s more important than ever to maintain our activism.
Join our first virtual meeting this Sunday, April 5th from 3pm to 5pm. We will address the issue of Voter Suppression. Our speaker is Professor Margaret Groarke, Coordinator os the Political Science department at Manhattan College. She was a community organizer at the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition in the 1980s, and has remained very involved in the organization ever since. She currently represents Manhattan College on the NWBCCC board. From 2009 until 2017, she was an active board member of Project Vote, who’s mission is to build an electorate that accurately represents the diversity of this nation’s citizenry, and to ensure that every eligible citizen can register, vote, and cast a ballot that counts.
We will watch the film Suppressed, which tells the story of how Georgia weaponized voter suppression to defeat Stacy Abrams’ bid to become the first African American woman to be Governor. This powerful 38 minute film can be seen online at BraveNewFilms.org/screensuppressed.
