The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, October 17th, 2023, from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern Time, entitled, “Transforming the American Electorate: The Voter Restoration Movement Rising”, will be live with Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine, Esq. and Daryl Jones, Esq. and guests Desmond Meade, Rodreshia Russaw, Jerome Dillard, and Rev. Dr. Christobal Kimmenez, Psy D. As TJC plans to take the John Lewis bus on the road to GOTV with our partners in Kentucky and Ohio, Nov 2nd – 7th, this week’s Igniting Change focus really speaks to the challenges of our time in combatting voter disenfranchisement! Imagine, the last Kentucky gubernatorial election was decided by 50,000 votes; yet, 140,000+ newly eligible formerly incarcerated persons in Kentucky are largely unaware that they can register and vote. Another 152,000 are still barred and ineligible. This is our vital work as we work to dismantle voter suppression of all stripes. Our Igniting Change radio show will be devoted to a national discussion of this subject with national & state voter restoration leaders.
