RIGGED-Trailer from American Issues Initiative on Vimeo.

The Message of Rigged: In the wake of the 2018 elections, our democracy is still in peril. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) states in the film, “I fear for our younger people. I fear they will not have the kind of democracy I experienced...somebody’s got to say, ‘This is not right.” Somebody’s got to say, ‘We can do better.’”


RIGGED exposes the nefarious tactics used to suppress the vote and sparks discussion on the actions needed now to protect our democracy.
