GOTV with Athena and Surge!

October 24, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In partnership with Vote Run Lead and OWNYourVote we invite you to join us Saturday, October 24, National Early Vote Day for SURGE TO THE POLLS.

Enjoy a conversation with actress Lynn Whitfield, star of OWN’s Greenleaf, and Congresswoman Lauren Underwood as they discuss the the political power of Black Women and why it’s crucial for everyone to #OWNYourVote

Prior to the Red Carpet Event, for three days only, our communities can enjoy former AFF Works-in-Progress documentary film, Surge.

Directed and produced by Hannah Rosenzweig and Wendy Sachs, Surge follows three congressional candidates in Texas, Indiana and Illinois who were each looking to flip their deep red districts to blue, including Lauren Underwood, the youngest Black woman to ever be elected to Congress. The film asks the question, is this a moment or a movement?

Reserve your spot to the event and we will email you the video on demand link Wednesday, Oct 21st.

We loved sharing exclusive clips of Surge at the 2020 festival, and now you’ll get the chance to see the full in its entirety. Please join us for  this important and powerful conversation. You’ll be inspired to take action, GOTV, and make your voice heard!
