We are dedicated to restoring the full human and civil rights of those most impacted by the criminal (in)justice system. Together we have the experiences, expertise, and power to improve public safety in Louisiana and beyond without relying on mass incarceration.VOTE is a founding and anchor partner holding work on issues facing formerly incarcerated people and the policies that keep them disenfranchised.
