Iowa is the last and only state in the country that takes away voting rightsfor lifefrom anyone convicted of a felony. A proposed amendment to the Iowa Constitution, HJR 14supported by a broad coalition including the ACLU, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa, the Governor, and many otherswould restore voting rights to over 60,000 Iowans. We will discuss the background of felony disenfranchisement in Iowa, ACLU of Iowa's efforts to change the law, and what you can do to help in this important fight.
