Electoral dysfunction( Visual )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The film opens as Mo makes an eye-opening discovery: The U.S. Constitution does not guarantee the right to vote. Mo sets out to learn why the Founding Fathers deliberately omitted the right to vote from the Constitution--and to understand the consequences of this decision. His quest leads him to Indiana, which has some of the strictest voting laws in the country. He meets two impassioned local activists--Republican Dee Dee Benkie of Versailles and Democrat Mike Marshall of North Vernon--who take him inside their efforts to turn out every vote. Dee Dee, a member of the Republican National Committee who worked in Karl Rove's office at the White House, has met her match in Mike, a veteran political consultant and former State Representative. Things heat up when the Republicans file a lawsuit challenging thousands of Democratic absentee ballots. As he progresses on his journey, Mo explores the heated debate over Voter ID and voter fraud; searches for the Electoral College; gets to know a former felon who mistakenly believed she was disenfranchised for life; critiques ballot design with Todd Oldham; and encounters a range of activists, experts, and election administrators, along with some highly opinionated third graders, who offer commentary on how voting works--or doesn't work--in America. Woven throughout the film are sequences in which Mo meets reformers working to bring greater fairness and transparency to our election system. Among these reformers are proponents of the National Popular Vote Campaign, who have devised a plan to reform the Electoral College without a Constitutional amendment. Although this pragmatic measure--which would result in direct election of the President--has already passed in 31 state legislative chambers, it has received scant attention from the mainstream media. These stories carry the film into the future while giving viewers concrete steps they can take to help bring about change."--Provided by producer

"LGBTQ Stats chronicles the ongoing LGBTQ revolution, providing the critical statistics, and draws upon and synthesizes newly collected data. Deschamps and Singer - whose previous books and films on LGBTQ topics have won numerous awards and found audiences around the globe - provide chapters on family and marriage, workplace discrimination, education, youth, criminal justice, and immigration, as well as evolving policies and laws affecting LGBTQ communities.

Becoming Johanna by Jonathan Skurnik( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does it feel when your mom prays everyday for you to be someone else? That's the struggle Johanna, a 16 year old transgender Latina faces. At first her mom thinks she's confused, or joking, but as Johanna's transformation continues, her mom simply can't handle the fact that her son is Becoming Johanna. After prayer doesn't change anything, Johanna's mom tries therapists and a mental hospital in her quest to "fix" her daughter's gender identity. While she was born a boy, Johanna is a young woman on the inside and nothing but living a lie can change that. Becoming Johanna is a compelling story that follows the struggles transgender teens face every day. In the end, Johanna refuses to let her mother's rejection define her life and she continues the journey toward becoming comfortable in her own skin. She finds mentors and a family-of-choice who love and support her and enable her to thrive."--Publisher
