Description:

"You may think the right to vote is a small matter, and if you do, I would bet you have never had it taken away from you." Thus begins the story of Desmond Meade and his inspiring journey to restore voting rights to roughly 1.4 million returning citizens in Florida—resulting in a stunning victory in 2018 that enfranchised the most people at once in any single initiative since women's suffrage. Let My People Vote is the deeply moving, personal story of Meade's life, his political activism, and the movement he spearheaded to restore voting rights to returning citizens who had served their terms. Meade survived a tough childhood only to find himself with a felony conviction. Finding the strength to pull his life together, he graduated summa cum laude from college, graduated from law school, and married. But because of his conviction, he was not even allowed to sit for the bar exam in Florida. And when his wife ran for state office, he was filled with pride—but not permitted to vote for her. Meade takes us on a journey from his time in homeless shelters to the exhilarating, joyful night in November of 2018 when Amendment 4 passed with 65 percent of the vote. Meade's story, and his commitment to a fully enfranchised nation, will prove to listeners that one person really can make a difference.
