Democracy and Voting Rights Project

Democracy and Voting Rights Project is dedicated to informed civil engagement and equal voting rights for all regardless of race, gender, disability, youth, ethnicity, ESL, and income. TJC will use the Voting Rights Map of Shame, developed by its President in 2011, to inform the public of threats to our democracy, how to protect their voting rights and steps to take to ensure their ability to cast a ballot and have it counted. Advancing electoral reforms will also be a component of this work. Seeking the restoration of voting rights for ex-felons will also be a part of the voting rights program.
