Alabama is one of only three states where currently incarcerated people can vote and the only state where that right was won through grassroots organizing by formerly and currently incarcerated people. Due to the tireless of work of organizations like The Ordinary People's Society and Prodigal Child Project, over 200,000 people are eligible to vote in Alabama's jails and prisons!
With just days until the voter registration and absentee ballot deadline, we need your help to put resources in the hands of organizers who are training community partners and going into Alabama's jails and prisons to register and turnout incarcerated voters.
Hometown Action is honored to co-chair a coalition called Alabama RACE (Restoring Alabama's Civic Engagement) alongside leading voting rights organizations in our state: The Ordinary People's Society/Prodigal Child Project, Alabama Black Women's Roundtable, NAACP, League of Women Voters, and many more.
We believe those closest to the problem are also closest to the solutions and seek to amplify the work of those directly impacted. Together we represent rural, urban, Black, white, LGBTQIA, women, students, and faith communities across Alabama, all committed to advancing the rights of currently and formerly incarcerated people.
