Felony Disenfranchisement Graphic 500x500.png

Before a jury convicted Alfonzo Tucker of a felony, he had never voted in an election. Then, while incarcerated, he read books about civil rights leaders who lost their lives fighting for the rights of African American's to vote and became inspired. When he was released, he tried to register to vote, but Alabama refused to let him. Alfonzo became one of the 6.1 million disenfranchised ex-felons.
