Voting Rights Lobby Day and Rally! | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Voting Rights Lobby Day and Rally!

Voting Rights RallyJoin us for our major lobby day and rally to restore voting rights to former felons who have served their debt to society!

Kentucky is one of just a few states that strip former felons of the right to vote - even after they've served their debt to society - unless they get a pardon from the Governor.

House Bill 70 would restore voting rights to most former felons and we'll be putting pressure on state legislators to pass the bill.

We're planning on having 200-300 people at the capitol to send a powerful message to lawmakers and we especially value having more former felons there to talk about their own experiences.

There's no lobbying experience needed. We put everyone in small lobby teams, with a mix of veteran citizen lobbyists and people who have never talked to a legislator before.

Meet in Capital Annex room 111 for rotating lobby training any time from 8:30am to 11am (come to the cafeteria downstairs if you need a lobbying orientation after that).

We'll have the big rally in the Capital Rotunda from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. – with former felon speakers, singing, and more.

And we'll have a quick debrief from 2:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. in Capitol Annex room 129.

Come all day from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. if possible, but if you can only be there for part of it, that helps too.
