America Divided presents an opportunity for us to begin real conversations on one of the most important issues of our time: inequality. In the episode, "Democracy for Sale," Zach Galifianakis travels back to his home state to investigate how North Carolina has passed laws designed to roll back access to the ballot.

Join us, as we view parts of the film, followed by discussion with panelists to dig deeper into the issue of gerrymandering in North Carolina, and what we can do to help change the laws.

Panel Speakers: Tyler Swanson, NAACP; Jenn Frye, Democracy North Carolina; Dianna Wynn, League of Women Voters; and Jennifer Copeland, NC Council of Churches.
