Felony Voter Disenfranchisement

“We are all We The People. When you tell me that I can’t participate in an election, you telling me I’m not a part of We The People…that makes me feel like you are still oppressing me, and you still seeing me as three-fifths of a human.”

Daquan Peters is the Second Chance Alliance Coordinator at LINC Inc, a nonprofit in Wilmington, North Carolina focused on reentry for formerly incarcerated people and youth empowerment. As a someone who was formerly incarcerated himself and is on federal probation for a felony conviction, Peters talks about voter disenfranchisement and why it’s vital to get the right to vote back.
