Many of us go to the polls on Election Day because it’s our civic duty. Most of us have never thought of what it would be like to be voteless and essentially voiceless. That’s why you need to screen Democracy’s Ghosts.
The film gets inside the minds of people who have lost the right to vote, revealing how it affects their lives, the communities they live in, and, ultimately, our society. After seeing the film, you will never again question whether you’re too busy to go to the polling booth. And you’ll want to act to make sure everyone can vote.
Whether you are new to this issue or an advocate who has worked on it for a while, the film and accompanying materials will help you take action to end felony disfranchisement.
In addition to the film, the DVD contains expert perspectives on the issue, expanded chapters of the film, and a short version of the film for use at conferences and in meetings with policymakers. There’s also a short, animated/live action film put together by Off Ramp Films and one of the characters in the film, great for showing at college events and conferences.
And best of all, it’s free. All we ask in return is feedback once you’ve screened it. So, click this link to order the film.
