"Out to Vote" Film Screening & Panel Discussion
Out to Vote - A story of redemption, a story of democracy.
After 37 years in prison, Bobby Perkins can hardly believe that he has become a community leader, engaging marginalized citizens on democracy. Moreover, he has found meaning in the process. “That’s why I go out here to pound these sidewalks to register people to vote,” he explains between puffs of a Newport cigarette. “Because I believe in it. I believe in the democracy.” Follow along in the run-up to the 2020 election as formerly incarcerated citizens, now community leaders Bobby Perkins, Nicole Hanson-Mundell and Monica Cooper go all-in to get out the vote in Baltimore, Maryland. Their efforts in the face of misinformation, polarization, and a global pandemic, are featured in this new Bertelsmann Foundation documentary by Samuel George, the director of, "Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington DC." Theirs is a story of the powerful positive impact of democratic engagement. After the showing, stay tuned for a panel conversation on the topics of the film. Featured speakers include Gilda R. Daniels (NYU Law '90), Professor of Law, University of Baltimore School of Law, Nicole Hanson-Mundell, Executive Director, Out for Justice, and Sean Morales-Doyle Acting Director, Voting Rights & Elections, Democracy, Brennan Center for Justice. Moderating the post-film panel discussion is Samuel George, Global Markets and Digital Advisor, Bertelsmann Foundation; Director, "Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC" and "Out to Vote: A Story of Redemption, A Story of Democracy." This webinar is produced in partnership with the John Brademas Center of New York University, the Brennan Center for Justice, the Bertelsmann Foundation, and NYU Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation.
