Take Back the Vote!

No single act would help more in ending the epidemic of mass incarceration and the New Jim Crow than felon enfranchisement.  An initiative petition has been approved by Missouri's Secretary of State which would allow us to collect signatures of registered voters.  We must gather 170,000 of these signatures by April 1, 2016 in order to put this issue on the ballot.  If Missouri voters agree, all prisoners, probationers and parolees would gain the right to vote.  Two states, Maine and Vermont, already practice true democracy by giving everyone the right to vote.  We need your help!

If you would like to assist in getting signatures of registered voters on this petition, please contact John Knowledge, P.O. Box 150299, St. Louis MO 63115 or by email at
