Unleashing courageous leadership and collective power
to realize a just and loving world.
MUUSJA has joined the campaign, Restore the Vote Minnesota. The campaign will be hosting a rally and door knock on Saturday, Sept 20th in Minneapolis and St. Paul to talk with community members about this campaign. We hope you can join us for this door knock and rally so we can begin building a groundswell of support on this important issue.
Every fall, we have the opportunity to exercise one of our must fundamental and sacred rights, the right to vote. This is a right that so many of us hold in high esteem. We proudly display I voted stickers and praise Minnesota’s high voter turnout. However, a day which so many of us look forward to is a day of exclusion and silencing for over 63,000 Minnesotans who have been convicted of a felony. In Minnesota, we disenfranchise over 50,000 of these Minnesotans even after they have left prison or jail and are living in our communities, and a disproportionate number are people of color. We want to change the law so as soon as you are released from prison or jail you are eligible to vote.
We will be hitting the doors in North Minneapolis and on the Eastside of St. Paul to talk with voters about our campaign, ask them to fill out action post cards (which will be sent to their legislators and the Governor), and to register people to vote. Please register today for the location of your choice!
