My Battle to Restore the Civil Rights of Returning Citizens
"We will not rest until we live up to the promise of Amendment 4 and see every one of the 1.4 million returning citizens who want to be a part of our democracy have the opportunity to do so."
"a story of courage and vision and persistence."
"Desmond Meade's Let My People Vote: My Battle to Restore the Civil Rights of Returning Citizens is a compelling story about one man's rise from addiction, homelessness, and prison to run a successful campaign to re-enfranchise more than one million Florida voters."
In Let My People Vote, 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 readers that one person really can make a difference.
"Amendment 4 was the largest expansion of voting rights in a half a century, and Desmond Meade made it happen."
"A man I deeply admire and respect, Desmond Meade is leading the way."
"Desmond Meade is one of my personal heroes, and his story is an inspiration for all those who aim to build a radically more inclusive society."
