FREEAMERICA’s #FREETHEVOTE campaign documents the visceral experiences of those who have been disenfranchised because of our current criminal justice system. It seeks to educate the public on the importance of restoring voting rights for formerly incarcerated individuals and to encourage those who were formerly disenfranchised to register to vote.
Your vote could impact the state of our country’s criminal justice system, particularly for those who do not have the access or opportunity to exercise their right to make their voices heard.
