Why Proposition 17 Is Our Chance To Address Systemic Racism In California
“Imagine sitting around and listening to millions debate the value of your voice and waiting for them to decide your ability to vote.”
Today on Blavity, Dorsey Nunn, Executive Director of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, shares his firsthand experience with being denied the right to vote as a Californian on parole. There are 50,000 people in California who can’t vote today because they’re on parole. Many have never gotten the chance to vote in an election despite being hardworking, taxpaying, involved citizens. That’s why Free the Vote 2020 is fighting to pass Proposition 17.
