LWV: Felony Disenfranchisement - A Historical Perspective

Dr. Pippa Halloway, MTSU history professor and author, will talk about the history of disfranchisement for criminal conviction. Post-Reconstruction criminal codes, societal dehumanization of prisoners, and expansion of the for-profit prison system coupled with the abandonment of reform and rehabilitation have all contributed to the institutionalized racism of permanent disfranchisement. Learn more about legislative actions that perpetuate this type of discrimination and affect local, state and national election outcomes today.
