UUSM will help support Florida’s revolutionary Voting Restoration Amendment (Amendment 4) on the state ballot this November with a phone bank on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 9 am to noon at the church.
Florida is one of only four states that ban convicted felons from voting for the rest of their lives. This measure would return the right to vote to Floridians who have done their time and paid their debts by completing their entire sentence – including any probation, parole, and restitution. Nearly 1.4 million people are currently disenfranchised. The amendment would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses.
UUSM joins our friend, erstwhile congregant, and Sunshine State UU, Brig Johnson, who has asked us to help win back the right to vote for over a million people in Florida. Join us to phone bank Saturday, October 27 from 9 am to noon in Forbes Hall Upstairs Rm 1.
