He is a graduate of Florida International University College of Law, and a Ford Global Fellow.In 2018,  63% of Florida voters overwhelmingly supported this initiative by voting YES for Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to more than one million fellow citizens.Of course the story – and our work – does not end there. The Republican led Florida legislature gutted the will of Florida voters and now a new strategy is needed. Come hear the latest and learn what you can do to help.
