Watch the feature-length documentary film “Let the People Decide” – a film about the struggle for voting rights from the 1960’s to right now – and later participate in a panel-discussion with the film-maker, Gavin Guerra, and three special guests who appear in the film.

The event is sponsored by Asian Americans in Action, Christ Our Redeemer AME Church, OC Human Relations and WAVE (Women for American Values and Ethics)

Let The People Decide explores the history of the struggle of voting rights from the 1960’s through the present day. The story connects the dots across the decades to show how the hotly debated issues of race & voting did not spring from a vacuum, but have been woven into the fabric of our society for generations.

You’ll have the opportunity to watch the film at a time of your convenience or to watch it just prior to the panel discussion on July 13.
