Red Thread invites you to attend a screening and panel discussion, July 16, hosted by The Feminist Majority Foundation and Ms. Magazine, Girls Learn Internationals, and the Civics Center. Beginning with a live screening of the award-winning documentary, Capturing the Flag, the event is part of a series of events Red Thread is producing for the filmmakers as a tool to drive activation and engagement around voting rights leading up to the election in November.
The film, Capturing the Flag, directed by Anne DeMare and produced by Elizabeth Hemmerdinger and Laverne Berry, is the story of a tight-knit group of friends who travel to Cumberland County, North Carolina – a ‘posterchild’ for voter suppression – intent on proving that the big idea of American democracy can be defended by small acts of individual citizens.
Tomorrow night’s event is moderated by Michele Goodwin, Chancellor’s Professor at University of California Irvine and host of Ms. Magazine’s podcast, On the Issues. More than that, there will be special guest Myrna Pérez, Director of Voting Rights and Elections Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, as well as Laverne Berry, the protagonist in and producer of Capturing the Flag.
