"Say Yes to 2nd Chances" project

Sun, Aug 27, 2017

I encourage everyone to support the “Say Yes to 2nd Chances” project and the proposed constitutional Voting Restoration Amendment to the Florida Constitution.  It would allow convicted felons who have paid their debt to society to vote.  Exceptions would be convicted murderers or sex offenders. I believe that the right to vote is fundamental to a true democracy.  Nearly 1.5 million Floridians are prohibited from voting and one in five African Americans are banned from voting due to prior felony convictions. Florida is one of three states that continues this antiquated practice. It’s time for a change.
