Voice4Change are putting on a free film screening of Chisholm '72 Unbought & Unbossed at the BFI Southbank this Saturday the 21st of May at 3:00

This is all part of our current focus on democracy, and on getting as many people registered to vote for the EU Referendum as possible. 

The film is the story of Shirley Chisholm, who ran to be the first black female president of the United States back in 1972, long before Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. Her story is an inspiring one, and we hope it will get people to feel passionate about democracy.

Turnout for elections has been too low for too long. For an issue as important as the EU Referendum, every vote needs to count. But among young people and BME voters especially, this hasn't been the case in recent times.

Our mission is clear. In order for people to be able to cast their vote, they need to be registered by the 7th of June.

Doing so couldn't be simpler! Just go to bit.ly/V4CEVOTE and you will be registered in five minutes
