An ACLU Special Briefing - One Person One Vote: The History of the Electoral College

Grace Andrews, 12th Grade History Teacher
"Viewing One Person, One Vote? with my AP US Government & Politics class of 12th graders in Bronx, NYC was a perfect conclusion to our course, demonstrating both the fragility of democracy and the urgency of civic engagement through a uniquely American history and current, lived experiences. The film's message is an accessible and nonpartisan call to action through education, values of equity, and advocacy, reinforcing original American democratic ideals of agency and representation through understanding and participating in the US Political system. Director Maximina Juson visited our classroom to speak to us about her work, further connecting my students to the American political landscape and our collective and individual roles as citizens. Her visit to our classroom crystallized the film's call to action, as she shared her experience, values, and passions, my students connected with her as an inspiring, real-life role model of civic activism in the United States. This film's content and message embodies critical aspects of US Government & History education and action; everyone in our country should be watching this!"
