TEDxFoggyBottom & Unchained Stories: Voting Rights Storytelling Session
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.
