In the midst of our nation’s public health crisis, another threat is lurking on the horizon. Our elections are at risk from both foreign and domestic interference, and the United States remains woefully unprepared to address the vulnerabilities of our voting systems.
Please join us for a Facebook Live panel discussion of the HBO documentary Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections, now available free to view on YouTube through May 25.
Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections uncovers previously unreported weaknesses in today’s election technology, exposing just how fragile our election systems can be. Our panel will dive into new information, share the backstories and previously unrevealed details not in the film, and also talk about solutions to secure our elections for 2020 and beyond.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 6 at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT
WHERE: Facebook Live – Free Speech For People
Hosts: Free Speech For People and Electronic Frontier Foundation
Moderator: John Bonifaz, Co-Founder and President of Free Speech For People
Introductions by actor and activist Alyssa Milano and U.S. Senator Ron Wyden
- Simon Ardizzone and Sarah Teale, Kill Chain Producers/Directors

Now more than ever, it is critical that we address the flaws in our election security. The window of time available to address these issues is rapidly closing, and the added challenges presented by the pandemic mean that it’s even more essential that we act together to protect our right to vote. We hope you’ll join us on May 6!
