Join us for Movies That Matter @ The Mug, a FREE weekly series of films on important topics, Sunday evenings at 6:30 p.m.
This week we highlight one of two Constitutional amendments that will be on Wisconsin's ballot November 7th:
• “The Freedom Files: Gay & Lesbian Rights” (http://aclu. tv) – It’s “No Marriage Discrimination Amendment Night” @ The Mug. This episode of the ACLU’s award-winning TV program shows how the members of gay and lesbian families in America are treated as second-class citizens under the law, lacking rights that many people take for granted. We’ll also watch a second episode, “Youth Speak.”

• “Electile Dysfunction” (http://www.electile -dysfunction. com) & “Democracy's Ghosts” (http://www.democracysghosts. com) - With the general election just two days away, we take a look at the two sides of the election fraud coin: manipulation and suppression. “Electile Dysfunction” examines how polling equipment companies, mostly run by Republican executives, can easily and secretly manipulate vote totals using electronic voting machines. And “Democracy's Ghosts” shows how people, largely poor and minority people, continue to be disenfranchised through vote suppression tactics that stem from the last legal Jim Crow laws. November 5th
