HELP RESTORE RETURNING CITIZENS

Committed to ending the disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions.

BAIL FUND | LEGAL DEFENSE FUND | CHANGE.ORG PETITION

For many returning citizens, voting is a step in a restorative journey. The state of Florida led many of these citizens to believe that they could exercise their right to vote, and then it arrested, jailed and charged them in front of their friends, families and neighbors. Voter integrity starts at the front end of our election process. We’ve created Bail and Legal Defense Funds to help financially challenged returning citizens who’ve been unjustly arrested for voting. We have also launched a Change.org petition to demand that the state immediately stop arrests of returning citizens, who have expressed that the state led them to believe they are eligible to vote and to create a centralized voter eligibility database to verify all voters by the end of 2023.
