Every election, 7 to 9,000 eligible voters face unconstitutional disenfranchisement when they are detained pre-trial or incarcerated for misdemeanors. What’s known as jail-based disenfranchisement disproportionately strips political power from hyper policed Black and POC communities. We need to pass bills S. 474 and H. 836 to end this cycle of disenfranchisement.
We are going to call constituents of key legislators, educate them on the bill and patch them through to their legislators' office to voice their support and ask for their endorsement of Bill S. 474 and H. 83. Come join us!
