Voter Engagement

Colorado is on the verge of a tipping point when it comes to criminal justice reform. We can improve public safety, advance racial justice, and promote other meaningful change across our state by coming together, raising our collective voice, and demonstrating our political power through voting.

CCJRC4A works to engage, educate and mobilize voters. We aim to build political power in communities most impacted by crime, overcriminalization and mass incarceration, and we are particularly interested in boosting voter engagement among people who have been directly impacted by the criminal justice system. These efforts dovetail with CCJRC’s Voting With Conviction campaign, which works to inform citizens that most people with criminal records — including those on probation and parole, and many currently in jail — are eligible to vote in Colorado.
