League member, Ann Zimmerman, presents information regarding voter registration of ex-felons.
During a day long Sheriff’s department training on Thursday, November 2, parole and re-entry officers from Saline, Reno, Sedgwick, Wyandotte, Douglas and Shawnee Counties discussed evidence that voter registration, like work and family re-entry support, leads to lower recidivism. To hear about some of the myths and facts surrounding this important topic see the video here.
EVERY Saturday at Ad Astra
We gather at 2:00 p.m. to write postcards to our representatives. In the last few months our state and national elected leaders have received hundreds of postcards from Salina area league members and other friends who have dropped by our table to write about their legislative concerns. The league provides the postcards, representative’s addresses and postage. All you have to do is add your voice! (Check our calendar for possible cancellations around the holidays.)
