Oregon is poised to become the third state to restore the right to vote to people currently incarcerated in prison. Next Up will be hosting monthly letter writing events to engage with incarcerated Oregonians about proposed legislation to restore their right to vote. The event will include training for folks who have never participated in letter writing campaigns in the past. Together we’ll learn about restoration of voting rights, the importance of communicating with people on the inside and uplifting their voices in policy advocacy. Each letter writing event will also double as a watch party where we engage with content that examines racism in our criminal legal system. We hope you’ll join us!
