Congressman Keith Ellison will be having a forum on Voting Rights with a
particular focus on Voter Re-Enfranchisement (ie ex felons).  Keith will
be speaking about legislation as well as to hear from people on the
ground what their concerns are as far as voting.  Also, there will be 4
or 5  people on the panel to tell their story or discuss research
they've done or programs that they are working on that pertain to voting
re enfranchisement.  We really need help getting the word out so please
forward this to anyone you may know, post on list serves and distribute
widely.  We really do need all the help that you can provide and
appreciate the help in getting the word out.  Attached is the flyer in a
PDF format.  If you can't read the PDF I've copied and pasted the flyer
below with the necessary information.  I hope to see you all there and
greatly appreciate your efforts.
