Civil Politics (5/21/21): De-Facto Disenfranchisement

This week we were lucky enough to talk to Kristina Mensik, the National Campaign Director for The National Council For Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls. Our main topic was all about how the incarcerated (people awaiting trial, and those serving a sentence for a misdemeanor) in Massachusetts are being denied their lawful right to vote.
