SHOW DESCRIPTION AND BACKGROUND

This show is broadcasting LIVE from the 56th International Convention of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition (RPC) being held in Chicago, June 18th – 23rd. In a historic joint venture, the Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) and RPC joined forces to highlight the voting rights challenges confronting our nation and to lift up strategies for overcoming these vicious schemes. A major panel entitled “Combatting The Vicious Attack On Voting Rights!” was live-streamed on June 20th through many social media platforms to a national virtual audience and featured panelists LaTosha Brown, Black Voters Matter; Rev Todd Yeary, Esq., CEO, Rainbow PUSH Coalition; Joshua Price, Former Pulaski County Commissioner, Helen Butler, Georgia Coalition for the People’s Agenda; Virginia Kase Solomon, CEO, League of Women Voters;  Desmond Meade, President & Executive Director, Florida Rights Restoration Coalition; Darius Ballinger, Founder, Chasing23, Barbara R. Arnwine, Esq., President, Transformative Justice Coalition; and Moderator, Daryl D. Jones, Esq., Chair of the Board, Transformative Justice Coalition. There was also a beautiful and moving Voting Rights Champion Reception held that evening which honored Marcus Arbery and Family, Crystal Mason, and Pamela Moses. The Reception featured speeches from all the honorees. Our show will recap these two major events.

Today, TJC’s Co-leaders will speak during the RPC Clergy Luncheon to encourage the religious community to help in the fight for voting rights by supporting TJC’s “Clergy to the Polls” Program. TJC is also undertaking a major nationwide voter restoration initiative for the next several years and building a spirit of perseverance and justice fighting voter suppression efforts that target formerly incarcerated persons and all voters. TJC Co-Leaders and Radio Hosts Attorneys Arnwine and Jones will discuss the new nationwide TJC Voter Engagement and Restoration Program to assist in this national fight to automatically restore the right to vote. 

This show will feature an overview of the continuing challenges of “felon disenfranchisement” by the States. Indeed, some 6 million citizens are outright blocked from voting by disenfranchising laws that impede their ability to restore their right to vote following incarceration or bar voting until the completion of parole, probation, sentencing, and/or the repayment of restitution and fees. It is estimated that 18 million more persons formerly incarcerated who are actually eligible to vote in their states do not register to vote based on confusion regarding their rights and fear of reincarceration should they mistakenly vote. 

Rev. Dr. Janette Wilson, Esq., Rev. Dr. Todd Yeary, Esq,  will provide a preview of the week’s RPC Convention events.
