Free The Vote

47,000 Minnesotans are unable to vote because of a past criminal conviction--including 10% of all voting age African Americans and 17% of African-American men. Minnesota’s uncommonly long drug sentences mean more people are under correctional control than almost any other state--and lose their vote in the process. It’s time to #freethevote to allow all people in our communities to participate fully in our democracy.

I support a state law restoring the right to vote immediately upon release from incarceration.

    An injustice to any is an injustice to all, and if it isn’t addressed individually, it becomes a global injustice as well. “You can’t struggle with the man’s house (mansion) using the man’s tools”, Audrey Lourdes, “be the change you wish to see in the world”, “the root of all oppression lies in (supposed) science”, Gandhi. Remember, if responsibility isn’t exercised, its Siamese twin sister, freedom, will wither, like an unused muscle as well; now, sadly, because of self-possession, it needs to be exorcised before it’s exercised. No one must be conned by the corporate structure’s convolution, divide and conquer only works on the divided, life is indivisible, as your potential is illimitable. reality
