12/30/19 6-8:00 pm “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote” RI Community Screening and Discussion:
Brave New Films weaves together personal stories from experts, poll watchers and ordinary Georgians speaking to the reality of voter suppression in the 2018 election. While voter suppression has been going on for over a century in America, Georgia was ground zero in 2018 amidst a historic gubernatorial race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp. Abrams fought to become the first Black female governor in the U.S. while her opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, running the election. Covering a race that was ultimately decided by just 54,723 votes, the film exposes how the constitutional right to vote remains under siege as the 2020 election approaches.
The event features a welcome message from Nellie Gorbea, Rhode Island Secretary of State, and a screening of the film. Immediately following the film, a panel discussion will be held. This event is co-hosted by: The #YESpvd! 365 Project, ARISE, AS220, the Equity Institute, Sprout CoWorking, the Rhode Island Department of State, and NAACP Providence Chapter. The location is Sprout CoWorking at the Rising Sun Mills campus, 166 Valley Street, Bldg 6M, Suite 103.
This event is part of #! 365 Project, a division of the Youth Empowerment Summit, to educate the community about civic action and voter suppression. Throughout the year the project hosts events and programs to enrich, empower and equip young people ages 13 to 24 with educational, entrepreneurship and employment opportunities.

Art Exhibit: In her exploration of neon painting (also called “blacklight painting”), Eveline executes a series of vibrant geometric studies, as a perceptual adventure of human emotion. The juxtaposition of primary colors and vivid, direct shapes are intended to show luminosity in the two contexts of this medium, normal light and “black light.” This double objective, which in a sense is a “duplicated reality,” underlies the emotional contrasts and perspectives that form these paintings. Eveline is a 3rd generation New York School artist who has lived and worked in NYC for many years. She currently resides in RI. She studied life drawing at RISD and abstract painting, drawing and sculpture at the Art Students League in NYC. She has taught abstract painting at the Providence Art Club and the Newport Art Museum. She has exhibited in New York, though out New England and in the Hamptons.
