This August, Brian Beutler of Crooked Media spoke to Prison University Project students in Ian Sethre and Alexandra Blackman’s American Government class about felon disenfranchisement. His story, San Quentin—Restore the Vote, features audio conversations allowing those directly impacted by the loss of voting rights to participate in the debate to restore them. This is well worth a close listen.

 
 

Please note that the Prison University Project became Mount Tamalpais College in September 2020.
