Webinar: Guaranteeing Voting Rights to People with Felony Convictions

Felony Convictions Webinar
To kick off National Voting Rights Month, The Sentencing Project and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) is hosting a discussion exploring how felony disenfranchisement policies impact individuals with a criminal conviction, the complexities of getting voting rights restored, and the cycle of criminalization some face as a result. Join on August 31 at 1:00 p.m. (ET) to learn from advocates who have been successful in advancing reforms in their state and are actively working to guarantee voting rights for all justice impacted citizens.
