Voting Rights Coalition forges a path forward

Votin Rights Coalition Meeting 2-24-19

 Today, we had our first Voting Rights Coalition meeting! Twenty-six people from 19 organizations came out to get to know each other and to start to forge a path forward to win the right to vote of 312,000 Kentucky citizens with felonies in their past.

There was a lot of good will and great ideas in the room and we're now together with a shared analysis and rough path forward.

About 25 additional organizations are interested in joining the conversation or have been in conversation with us on the issue, but weren't able to make it out to this meeting. It's a solid start.
