This panel discussion will bring together representatives of several organizations that address the treatment and voting rights of currently and formerly incarcerated citizens. They will review the efforts of these organizations to help eligible jailed and formerly incarcerated citizens reenter the political sphere and help them gain trust in the voting system. The panel will review each organization’s work, the current and proposed laws governing these issues, and how the laws will affect voting rights for these individuals. League of Women Voters Detroit and the Detroit Public Library are partnering in talks promoting voter education and tools for action.
A Zoom link will be sent to registrants before the program. We will have Zoom auto- transcription for the program.
