LeBron James is Helping Florida Felons Pay Fees So They Can Vote


LeBron James

LeBron James is the founder of the voting rights group, More Than A Vote.  Their goal is to raise funds to help people in Florida with felony records pay outstanding court debt.  The debt prevents many Floridians from voting.  The group includes other Black athletes and artists working to fight voter suppression.  More Than A Vote has partnered with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. The group helped to end Florida’s lifetime voting ban for most people with felony convictions.  1.4 million Floridians have felony convictions.  Are you aware of voter suppression laws in your state?
