RE: The Right to Vote!
In November of 2018 nearly 65% of Florida voters said yes to Amendment 4 – The voting restoration amendment. This amendment restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. The amendment went into effect on January 8, 2019 making an estimated 1.4 million people with felony convictions eligible to register to vote. After lengthy wrangling in the legislature and courts, it was determined that all fines, legal fees and restitution needed to be paid before the right to vote could be restored. The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC) needs our help. The Miami Trial Lawyers stand up for the right to vote. Voting is vital to our democracy. Like FRRC the Miami Trial Lawyers are committed to ending the disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions.
MORE THAN A VOTE, headed by NBA Superstar Lebron James led the way by donating $100,000 to help register Florida voters with felony records by paying their court debts and fees. We want to join forces with MORE THAN A VOTE and the others that believe in giving people a second chance and restoring their rights.
Please make a pledge. The money you give actually goes back to the community. It pays off fines and fees and restitution. It’s a win-win.
