Keep the Vote! Kick-Off and HBO Films' Iron Jawed Angels FREE Screening

Sun, March 8, 2009 | University of Texas Thompson Conference Center

6:30 PM

The object of the KEEP THE VOTE! Kick-Off event is to build on the current high voter interest by spotlighting upcoming elections and reverse the trend of low voter turnout following high profile elections.

In conjunction with the Kick- Off and with special permission from HBO Films the League is screening HBO Films' Iron Jawed Angels-a film starring, among other notable actresses, Oscar-winning Hilary Swank and Anjelica Huston. The film is an inspirational true story of two women who made a stand for women's voting rights in 1920, but is also a lesson on the power of everyday people organizing for a common cause to make political change.

The screening is FREE to the public and TExas elected/public officials have been invited.

If planning on being in attendance, please RSVP to
