Stand with John Legend

The Democracy Restoration Act (DRA) is federal legislation that seeks to restore voting rights in federal elections to the 4.4 million disenfranchised Americans who have been released from prison and are living in the community, but are still denied the right to vote.

The bill has been introduced in the 114th Congress by Representative John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD). Click here for the press release around its 2015 introduction.
