    The System

    AD_Criminal_Justice_Quote_2.jpgThe 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 July 25th for The System, an episode from the America Divided series, at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.  Entry is free.  The Road House menu will be available if you want to order dinner or a snack.  

    The System – Policing and Mass Incarceration Common returns to his hometown of Chicago – a city on fire in the aftermath of the brutal police killing of teenager Laquan McDonald. With thousands of people in the streets, Chicago has become the epicenter of national debates around police violence, racism and accountability. Working with community activists and whistleblowers, Common discovers a decades-long pattern of police corruption and sophisticated cover-ups that stretch all the way to the mayor’s office. But Common also finds reason for hope. An energized movement in the streets mounts unprecedented pressure for reform. It’s clear that the system is broken — is it finally time for a change?

    Doors open at 6 PM, screening at 6:30 PM. (approximately 60 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.

    Something in the water

    AD_Flint_Quote_2.jpgThe 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, August 26th for Something in the Water, an episode from the America Divided series, at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.  Entry is free.  The Road House menu will be available if you want to order lunch or a snack.  

    While most people are aware of the basic contours of the Flint water story, America Divided goes deeper. Correspondent Rosario Dawson investigates how a government could poison its own citizens, what hidden forces may have been at work, and how specific policies unique to Michigan, led not only to the crisis in Flint but also damaged other poor, largely African American communities around the state.

    Doors open at 12:30, Movie at 12:45.  Run time approximately 60 minutes.
