RECORD A VIDEO, TELL YOUR STORY

Record a video explaining why you support Prop 17, restoring voting rights to the nearly 50,000 Californians on parole.

Felony disenfranchisement in the California Constitution can be traced directly to a history of racially discriminatory Jim Crow laws passed in the 1800s. After the 15th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution banned voter disenfranchisement based on race, many states used criminal convictions - coupled with the intense over-policing of communities of color - as a way to keep Black and Brown communities out of the polling place. Fearing a rise in the political power of African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Chinese immigrants, California wrote felony disenfranchisement into the state’s first constitution in 1849. After being the only former free state to initially reject the 14th Amendment ending slavery, California also rejected the 15th Amendment in 1870.
