virginia organizingVirginia Organizing leaders were present in Richmond today as Governor Terry McAuliffe announced executive action to restore civil rights to 206,000 returning citizens.

Virginia Organizing Chairperson Ladelle McWhorter offered the following in response:

“Virginia Organizing is grateful to Governor Terry McAuliffe for using his executive power to restore voting rights to more than 200,000 returning citizens in Virginia. Although this is not a permanent solution to changing the restoration of rights process, it is a solution for real people that will have a real effect on their lives and their ability to participate in the civic process. Virginia Organizing will continue to organize to support a constitutional change that would permit an automatic restoration process.”
