The Ex-Felon Association
In Florida, where the Ex-Felon Association is located, there are nearly 1.5 million ex-felons. That means there are nearly 1.5 million people in the Sunshine State who can’t vote, can’t sit on juries, aren’t eligible for government support to go to college and, as we know, have a heck of a time trying to get jobs. Indeed, Florida is one of only four states that do not automatically restore voting rights after felons have served their sentences.
We want to help the criminal justice system change that. And change is happening. On this page, we will regularly update you on those changes that are occurring in the ex-felon industry –and it is an industry.
