Event Details


 

Join us for the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition 2018 Annual Convening at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, FL on August 9th - 11th, 2018 

We are at the cusp of making history, and I need you to continue to stand with us.  Last year over 400 supporters from across the state and nation attended the FRRC Convening and created unified grassroots driving force behind the Voting Restoration Ballot Initiative in a powerful way.  Returning Citizens and our coalition partner organizations boldly faced all challenges and accomplished the impossible!

Together we:

  • Collected over 1 million signatures in 5 months!
  • Officially certified the Voting Restoration Amendment on the November ballot as “Amendment 4”

With the support of people from all walks of life and backgrounds, we have become a shining example of what can happen when we come together along the lines of humanity.  What we have already accomplished is miraculous, and for that I extend my sincerest thanks to the love and commitment that each of you have poured into this effort. Without you, none of this would have been possible.

But we are now at the final stage of this amazing journey. Over the next 6 months, we have two major lifts ahead on our pathway to victory. One, we must lead on educating the public on this issue and garnering more support from our fellow Floridians; and two, we must unleash the most powerful GOTV effort this country has ever seen!

At the Convening, FRRC members and allies we will be able to experience: interactive participation with the Ballot Initiative Expert Panel; hands-on messaging training that will enrich our Public Education Program; and relationship building and collaborative planning with other FRRC partners from your region. Additionally, all Convening participants will leave with tangible resources to help them achieve their volunteer goals, including messaging, phone banking, canvassing and voter turnout toolkits. 


Champions of Change Gala & Awards Ceremony

Another exciting event will be happening during Convening weekend. Our 2nd Annual Champions of Change Gala honoring FRRC’s Social Justice Champions on the evening of August 11th, at The Rosen, in Orlando.  Last year’s Gala was hosted by Ms. Vivica A. Fox, so stay tuned for updates for this years host.

We need your support now to build our future success. I look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando, August 9th-11th. It is a weekend you do not want to miss!

Organizer

Florida Rights Restoration Coalition

FRRC is a grassroots, membership organization run by Returning Citizens (Formerly Convicted Persons) who are dedicated to ending the disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions, and creating a more comprehensive and humane reentry system that will enhance successful reentry, reduce recidivism, and increase public safety.

 

 

The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition is committed to removing Florida’s civil rights ban, which is imposed on citizens with past felony convictions.

 

Florida is one of only three states that strip all individuals with past felony convictions of their civil rights, including their fundamental right to vote, even after completion of their sentences.
