(Brave New Films (BNF) is a new media company based in Culver City, California.  Founded by filmmaker Robert Greenwald, BNF produces feature-length documentaries and investigative videos that according to Greenwald's website, seek "to educate, influence and empower viewers to take action around issues that matter.")

Brave New Films is working hard to continue the fight for social justice. More than ever, facts matter. But social distancing will NOT stop social justice.

That’s why we they will be sharing a weekly feature film and an action that you can take part in from home. NASWGA will share some of those films that are relevant to voting/ Voter Suppression with our membership. 

The first weekly film is Suppressed: The Fight To Vote. Voter suppression continues to threaten our democracy. But now with COVID-19, many voters will be fearful, sick or unwilling to go out to the polls to vote. As some states across the country took steps this week to make voting easier in light of the coronavirus, the Republican-controlled legislature in Kentucky quietly tightened and approved a new photo ID requirement that would make it harder to vote. We must make it EASIER for all citizens to vote by demanding Universal Vote By Mail and Early Voting for the November election. Sign the petition here. 

 

After you sign, watch Suppressed: The Fight To Vote and please register for your absentee ballot here.
