Florida Rights Restoration Coalition

Three ads from the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC). It is their mission to have Florida join the 40 states in the nation that automatically restore the civil rights of all individuals with past felony convictions upon completion of non-monetary terms of their sentences.

Copy: “Our nation’s future is at stake. Your voice shouldn’t be silenced by your past.”
“If your civil rights have been restored after a felony conviction, you may now be eligible to register to vote. Don’t miss this opportunity to fully participate in our democracy. Contact us and we’ll help you every step of the way. Because your voice - and your right to vote - are too important to be silenced.”

Comments about Have your rights been restored?

I have been incarcerated in florida prisons and I was realsed on April 1,2005 sometime in 2007 my civil rights were restored now I am trying to go for a Request for Waiver of rules of Executive Clemency in florida, normally I would have to wait 8 years after my sentence was finished to apply for this Waiver, the minium wait time for this is 2 years have to be finished sentence, I am apply for the waiver because I would like to get my right back to have firearms, hunting is a large part of my religious beliefs because my momma was Apache,Blackfoot,Cherokee Indian,  but I am having to get alot paperwork and I have to provide 5 complete copies to send to the Govenor,Cabinet members,Parole commission, I hope they will grant me this request . also I am a combat veteran of Viet nam with the Marine Corps. I have not sent this copies out yet so I will see what happens. also it is my beliefe that a court or other authority should not be able to deny your right to own and use firearms to use them to hunt and provide saftey defense of your home or family or friends, but we all know how corrupt the government is!!

I have been incarcerated in Florida and have been released for 11 years and I still do not have my rights back. Could help me find some ways to get them back or at least find out why I have not got them.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
