'Capturing the Flag' Screening and Discussion
Register now for a virtual screening of "Capturing the Flag," a documentary that shares the story of three activists who worked to combat voter suppression in Cumberland County, N.C., in 2016, and a live town hall on how to make a difference during the 2020 elections season.
"Capturing The Flag" is an urgent cautionary tale that documents what's in store for the fast approaching election of 2020, and a close-up look of American democracy at its most vulnerable point. Through the intimate experiences of the film's citizen volunteers — and the hundreds of voters they try to assist — the human dimension of democracy comes into focus. The screening will be followed by a live town hall with:
- Sylvia Albert, director of voting and elections at Common Cause;
- Alexandria "Alex" Harris, executive director of The Andrew Goodman Foundation; and
- Courtney Cardin, who directs nonprofit partnerships and influencer engagement for Power the Polls.
