SEARCH KENT STATE
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
This Constitution Day, we are excited to host a virtual screening of the inspiring documentary And She Could Be Next, followed by a panel discussion.
Thursday, Sept 17 4 - 5:30 p.m.
Registration is required to receive the Zoom link for this event. Register at https://tinyurl.com/ULConstDay2020. Only valid Kent State email addresses will be accepted. Space is limited.
The film follows a defiant movement of women of color as they transform politics from the ground up. Filmed during the historic 2018 midterm elections, the series features organizers and candidates (including Rashida Tlaib and Stacey Abrams) as they fight for a truly reflective government, asking whether democracy can be preserved—and made stronger—by those most marginalized. You can view the film’s trailer at www.amdoc.org/watch/media/1371/.
Immediately following the screening will be a panel discussion that will include the filmmakers, Grace Lee, Marjan Safinia and Jyoti Sarda, as well as Kent State faculty members Denise Harrison, Joycelyn Harrison, Ph.D., and Janine Tiffe, Ph.D.
Dean Ken Burhanna will serve as the panel's moderator. We are hopeful that this event will encourage our campus community's students and colleagues to register to vote and to make their voices heard at the polls this November.
