Noon – 1:00 pm ET
In the United States, up to 17 million Americans with prior convictions could register to vote today. Many more are eligible to restore their right to vote through an application process. However, millions are confused about whether they have the right to vote — or can have their rights restored — because of unnecessarily complicated and opaque felony disenfranchisement laws.
Join Campaign Legal Center (CLC) for "The Movement to Restore Voting Rights." During the call speakers will discuss efforts to increase awareness and the fight to help citizens restore their voting rights across the country.
