The Stan Simpson Show: Unlock the vote for CT’s ex-offenders

In the last decade, CT’s prison population has dropped 30 percent from almost 20,000 in 2008 to about 13,500 now.

The state has become a model for prison reform and creating a “second chance” culture for ex-offenders.

There is a push this year to restore voting rights to those ex-offenders still on parole. Social justice activist Kennard Ray joins the Stan Simpson Show to talk about CT’s emerging prison reform.
