Help Restoration of Voting Rights and Reentry of Ex Offenders @ Bangkok 54 Restaurant & Bar
Sep 25 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

The Arlington League of Woman Voters presents another Sips and Civility Program!

Our focus this time is the restoration of ex-felon rights in Virginia. Unfortunately, our Commonwealth has one of the most difficult systems for those who have paid their dues to society to become voters again. We will learn about this process and how you can help change it from Elizabeth Jones Valderrama, Executive Director of Offender Aid and Restoration OAR and Lashawnda Singleton Restoration of Rights Community Relations Specialist at Secretary of the Commonwealth.

Then you can write postcards to your legislators and learn how else you can change this system.

Join us for a night of great food at Bangkok 54 (you can order off their menu) and important voter action!
