ACLU of Wisconsin and NAACP Wisconsin Invite you to a Community Summit on Fair Elections
Help build the movement to repeal the most damaging of Jim Crow laws still in effect in Wisconsin.
Enfranchise all citizens in our community, including those who have finished incarceration sentences.
Thursday, July 19
11:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
NAACP Headquarters – lower level
2745 N. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, Milwaukee
Over five million people in the U.S. have been disenfranchised due to felony convictions. In Wisconsin, even after incarceration, citizens deemed safe to live in our communities, work, pay taxes, raise families and are still denied the right to vote if they are “on paper.” Some of them for years! This restriction adds confusion and bureaucracy. It even makes voting, the most sacred responsibility of a citizen in our country, a crime.
Join us in bringing Wisconsin up to date with most other Midwestern states who are streamlining their rules on voting.
This is a brown bag lunch event, however, if you RSVP by July 16, 2007, lunch will be provided. We are accepting $5.00 donations to offset the costs of lunch.
Please RSVP to Angie Vasquez in the ACLU of Wisconsin office, (414) 272-4032 x11
