Guaranteeing Voting Rights to People with Felony Convictions

Webinar will take place August 30th, 2022 at 1 pm.

To kick off National Voting Rights Month, The Sentencing Project and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) invite you to a discussion exploring how felony disenfranchisement policies impact individuals with a criminal conviction, the complexities of getting voting rights restored, and the cycle of criminalization some face as a result. Join us to learn from advocates who have been successful in advancing reforms in their state and are actively working to guarantee voting rights for all justice impacted citizens. REGISTER HERE.

Panelists:

Anthony “Pete” Petty, Washington DC’s More Than Our Crimes
Cecile Scoon, President, League of Women Voters of Florida
Rep. Tarra Simmons, Washington House of Representatives

Moderated by Nicole D. Porter, The Sentencing Project with Monica L. Reid of NACDL
