Making Democracy Work

Our Panelists: Rentry Community and Voting Rights Special Event!

Arthur League, Co-Founder and Board Member, All of Us or None
"Before voter suppression affected everyone, it affected former and current prisoners. What can, and often is, done to us as members of the reentry community, will soon be done to the whole community."

All of Us or None is a grassroots civil and human rights organization fighting for the rights of formerly- and currently- incarcerated people and our families. All of Us or None fights against the discrimination that people face every day because of arrest or conviction history.

Barbara Quintero, RAS, Substance Abuse Counselor Supervisor, Magnolia Women's Recovery Program

"I believe in providing women a way to re-engage with their communities. Voting is a right and teaching them to exercise that right is important." -Barbara Quintero

Magnolia Women's Recovery Program is a residential treatment facility for pregnant women and women with children 0-7 years of age battling addiction. Magnolia was founded in 2000 by Dr. Linda Stewart, who saw the need to provide a safe place for women to heal from many different traumas and get at the root causes of their addiction.

The Men of Valor Academy was established more than 20 years ago by Bishop Robert (Bob) Jackson to serve a community which was previously overlooked, or at best underserved: the African American Male community. Since that time, it has opened its doors to all people from every walk of life and particularly those individuals coming back into our communities from jail and prison.

Men of Valor provides supportive solutions including job training, life skills, barrier removal, family reunification, spiritual and moral guidance and educational enrichment.
