Desmond Meade, with Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC), wants to expose the rhetoric that divides and creates false narratives. A felony conviction stirs up all kinds of images regarding what the convicted felon must have done. Left to our own imagination we picture the worst offenses, however felony charges can account for such violations as releasing balloons into the sky. Florida felony convictions are approximately 170,000 per year with less than 3% have anything to do with high level offenses.


FRRC believes that once their debt has been paid, it is in everyone’s best interest to have the ex-felon fully integrated into society. “The more people that vote, the more vibrant our democracy becomes”’, said Meade.
