WISDOM has launched the “Unlock the Vote” campaign to restore voting
rights to people when they return from incarceration. Incarcerated people
never lose the right to vote in states like Vermont and Maine: that should
be the case here as well! A huge majority of those formerly incarcerated
are people of color. Why do we want people to vote?

helping to reduce recidivism.
⸰ People on probation and parole pay taxes and live within our
communities and therefore should have a say in how those communities operate.
⸰ Voting is part of democracy, and a true democracy includes all of its people.
