Democracy Needs Everyone Report
“Democracy Needs Everyone” is a first-of-its-kind report unveiling our groundbreaking research on the importance of restoring the right to vote to people in prison and on parole.
We surveyed more than 1,000 incarcerated people and people on parole in California with the goal of uncovering how our political system could improve by ending felony disenfranchisement.
Our data reveals: 1) People in prison and on parole are interested in voting and would be active participants in our democracy; 2) People in prison and on parole contribute to their communities in various positive ways; and 3) Restoring the right to vote to people in prison and on parole would improve public safety.
The Report will be released at our March 1st Launch Event and made available online on this page, so stay tuned!
