    Supreme Courts Block McCrory Appeal of 4th Circuit Ruling

    From the Wall Street Journal: A divided Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected an emergency appeal by North Carolina seeking to revive stricter state voting rules, which reduced the number of days for early voting and required photo identification at the polls. The high court, in a brief written order, declined to stay an appeals court ruling from July that struck down North Carolina’s Republican-backed voting rules. The appeals court found state lawmakers enacted the rules with the intent to discriminate against black voters. North Carolina’s bid to restore the rules for Election Day split the Supreme Court’s current eight justices along ideological lines, with four liberal justices rejecting the request and four conservative justices supporting the state. The even split meant a loss for the state’s appeal.

    Inequality for All

    inequalityforall.pngThe Chatham County Democratic Party is excited to present a monthly series of movies on important issues.  We hope you will be able to join us on Saturday, October 21st   for Inequality for All at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.  Entry is free.  The Road House menu will be available if you want to order lunch or a snack.  

    Inequality for All is a 2013 documentary film directed by Jacob Kornbluth. The film examines widening income inequality in the United States. The film is presented by American economist, author and professor Robert Reich, and is based on his 2010 book Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future. The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in the Documentary Competition section, and won a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Achievement in Filmmaking.

    Reich distills the story through the lens of widening income inequality—currently at historic highs—and explores what effects this increasing gap has not only on the U.S. economy but also American democracy itself. At the heart of the film is a simple question: What is a good society and what role does the widening income gap play in the deterioration of the nation's economic health?

     

    "We make the rules of the economy – and we have the power to change those rules." – Robert Reich
    We need to approach the problem of widening income inequality from 6 different directions. The trick is to understand how they all fit together while choosing manageable actions that make sense to who you are. We may not be able to do everything at once but think of each action you take as an incremental step towards the structural change our economy needs. To get started, tell us who you are or select an issue that matters to you below.

    Doors open at 12:30, Movie at 12:45.  Run time 90 minutes.

    CCDP supports CORA Food Pantry.  We will be collecting donations of food for CORA at each screening.   Here is a list of most needed items.

    13th

    The Chatham County Democratic Party is excited to present a monthly series of movies on important issues.  We hope you will be able to join us on Tuesday November 14th for 13th, at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.  Entry is free.  The Road House menu will be available if you want to order dinner or a snack.

    Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-Nominated documentary, 13th, is a provocative examination of how systemic racism impacts the justice system.

    America has more people behind bars per capita than any other country on Earth. And a disproportionate number of those inmates are African American. 13th argues mass incarceration is simply slavery by another name. We now have more African Americans under criminal supervision than all the slaves back in the 1850s. Mass incarceration as modern day slavery. The documentary explores the impact of decades of law and order politics and a prison industry that director Ava DuVernay says profits off punishment. Slavery, reconstruction, Jim C crow, the drug wars, the Reagan years, the Nixon years, the Clinton years and then the prison boom and how it mushroomed.

    poster-1.jpg “Powerful, infuriating... Ava DuVernay’s documentary ‘13TH' will get your blood boiling… Electrifying.”

    --THE NEW YORK TIMES

     “Smart and powerful. As put together by DuVernay’s longtime editor, Spencer Averick, everything in ‘13TH’ illuminates what is convincingly presented as a sad and tragic story that we are still living today.”

    Kenneth Turan | LOS ANGELES TIMES

     “DuVernay creates a cogent, compelling argument in ‘13TH,’ which balances attractively filmed talking-head interviews with alternately heartbreaking and infuriating archival footage.”

    Ann Hornaday | THE WASHINGTON POST

     “Incendiary, indelible and indispensable.”

    Peter Travers | ROLLING STONE

     “’13TH' is probably the most important film you’ll ever see. DuVernay’s film is downright incredible.”

    Clayton Davis | AWARDS CIRCUIT

    Doors open at 6 PM, screening at 6:30 PM. (approximately 100 minutes.)
