TEDxFoggyBottom & Unchained Stories: Voting Rights Storytelling Session

Please join us this Friday, October 16, for a very special event. We know the upcoming election is on your mind! 

So Unchained Stories in partnering with TEDx Foggy Bottom to host a virtual exhibit, storytelling session and conversation about incarceration, voting and the political process. 


In Washington, DC, citizens who are currently incarcerated for a felony can vote for the first time this November thanks to new legislation enacted by the City Council this year. Advocates in other states (including Maryland) continue to fight for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people to regain their voting rights.

In this critical election where national conversations about abolition and transformation of the criminal legal system and policing are at the forefront, we are bringing together returning citizens and directly impacted leaders to share their own stories about voting and the political process. We will also screen  some powerful video content that highlights the critical issue of voting rights.

Storytellers include:

  • Kristin Adair, founder + creative director, Unchained Stories

  • Monica Cooper, executive director, Maryland Justice Project

  • Jonas Gilham, writer, assistant producer, Unchained Stories

  • Earl Young, returning citizen and mentor at Baltimore City Public Schools

Stay tuned on social media for additional special guests!

When: Friday, October 16, 12-1pm
Where: Everywhere via Zoom!
Presented by Unchained Stories in partnership with TEDx Foggy Bottom
