Iowa Voting Rights Restoration Lobby Day
Monday, February 17th at 2:00 pm in Des Moines
Our Forum is part of a statewide coalition that is working to pass HJR14 in Iowa. This House Joint Resolution would amend the Constitution to restore voting rights to people once they are off parole or probation. Iowa is currently the only state that permanently bans voting rights for these individuals. People can presently appeal through the governor, but that option may change with a new governor.
Our coalition is having a Lobby Day at the State Capitol in Des Moines on Monday, February 17th at 2:00 pm. We will provide transportation to and from this event.
Pastor Dwayne Hodges is leading the local efforts to organize people who are directly impacted by this issue. EXPO (Ex-incarcerated People Organizing) is a group being established for this purpose.
It is important that we show up to let our legislators know that we want everyone to have the right to vote.
If you are interested in participating in this fun event, please contact Amber Bordolo.
