Restore communities that have been harmed by mass incarceration;

Restore balance, fiscal discipline and humane priorities to our state’s criminal justice system;

Restore men and women back to the community who do not need to be incarcerated;

Restore people to health through increased treatment alternatives to incarceration, decreased use of solitary confinement, better support for those who return from jail or prison.

Time: 8:30 am

Unlock The Vote Campaign


A campaign to restore voting rights to people when they return from incarceration.

WISDOM has launched the “Unlock the Vote” campaign to restore voting rights to people when they return from incarceration. Incarcerated people never lose the right to vote in states like Vermont and Maine: that should be the case here as well!

A huge majority of those formerly incarcerated are people of color. Why do we want people to vote?

⸰ Voting helps people feel a sense of ownership over their community, helping to reduce recidivism.

⸰ People on probation and parole pay taxes and live within our communities and therefore should have a say in how those communities operate.

⸰ Voting is part of democracy, and a true democracy includes all of its people.

Contact the WISDOM office for the schedule of presentations around the state to promote the Unlock the Vote campaign.
