Rights Restoration and War in Space! Peace & Justice, Weds. May 13 at 9am.

Written by on Sunday, May 10, 2020

This Wednesday May 13 at 9am our guest, on the phone live, will be Neil Volz. Neil is the Deputy Director of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. FRRC is a “grassroots, membership organization run by Returning Citizens (Formerly Convicted Persons) who are dedicated to ending the disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions, and creating a more comprehensive and humane reentry system that will enhance successful reentry, reduce recidivism, and increase public safety.”

We’ll talk about what FRRC is doing to help returning citizens and about the upcoming ruling from U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle on the 2019 Florida law that added a requirement to pay all fines, fees and restitutions as a condition for former felons to vote under Amendment 4 passed in 2018.

On the second half of our show our guest will be long time friend of the show Bruce Gagnon. Bruce is the founder of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. Read about their mission HERE.
