“Join the YWCA STAT and Restore Your Vote for a workshop on felony disenfranchisement and voting rights restoration in Arizona.
During the midterm election season, everyone is talking about voting, and over 220,000 Arizonans have been excluded from the conversation because of past felony convictions.
This is 4.25% of the entire state-wide voting-age population and 11.89% of the adult black male voting-age population. The Latinx community is also disproportionately impacted, making up nearly 28% of all disenfranchised persons in the state. The law is intentionally complex, preventing individuals from knowing how to restore their rights at the end of a sentence. Felony disenfranchisement is an issue of racial justice, keeping thousands of people of color from the polls in Arizona.
In partnership with the YWCA, Restore Your Vote is working to restore the rights of individuals with past convictions, to raise awareness of the ability to restore voting rights, and to train leaders in rights restoration.
Come to learn about the issue of felony disenfranchisement nation-wide, the process for rights restoration in Arizona, and how to work to restore voting rights in your community.”
