We’ve had Sept. 18 circled on our calendars since Amazon Prime Video announced it as the release date for All In: The Fight For Democracy, a new documentary that examines the issue of voter suppression in the United States. Interweaving personal experiences with activism and historical insight, All In exposes a problem that has imbued our nation’s electoral history from the very beginning.
With Stacey Abrams, a 2018 Democratic candidate for Georgia’s governorship, at the center of the film, it’s bound to ruffle a few partisan feathers. But that doesn’t make the film’s message any less urgent – and that message is simple: Do what it takes to vote. Watch it here via Prime Video.
Then, join Civic Nebraska’s voting rights team for a virtual training to learn the ins and outs of election protection for Election Day on Nov. 3 and become a volunteer election observer. We’ll go over basic election law, some do’s and dont’s at polling places, what’s asked of nonpartisan election observers amid COVID-19 restrictions, and observers’ important role in ensuring free, fair, and transparent elections in Nebraska. RSVP for our Zoom meeting here. And if you’re an attorney in Nebraska, we can always use volunteer attorneys to help out with our Election Protection efforts on Election Day. We’ll be holding a special training for lawyers on Sept. 28 – get details for that session here. Help us protect the vote!
