McAuliffe Restores the Rights of 206,000 Ex-Offenders

Listen to Tram's spot on WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi Show

“It is a historic day for democracy in Virginia and across our nation,”

“The disenfranchisement of people who have served their sentences was an outdated, discriminatory vestige of our nation’s Jim Crow past.”

- Tram Nguyen, co-executive director of the New Virginia Majority (quoted by the Washington Post)
