Building Our Collective Voter Strength

Who We Are

Founded in 1999, the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate the overuse of the criminal justice system and advance community health and safety. We are people convicted of crime, survivors of crime, and the families and allies of both. We advocate and organize for public safety strategies that are more holistic, effective and just.

Voting With Conviction Project

Since 2006, CCJRC has run the only civic engagement campaign in Colorado that focuses exclusively on people with criminal backgrounds. In addition to statewide voter education, CCJRC provides free trainings to election officials, GOTV efforts, Voter Registration Drives, community organizations, and our members on the nuances of voting eligibility for people with criminal backgrounds. Building political power together requires participation from everyone. There is a lot of confusion around voter eligibility and it’s important that you know the law.

Use Your Voice—Register to Vote & Vote! To request a free training, copies of our VOTING WITH CONVICTION educational materials, or for more information about the project, contact us at (303) 825-0122 or or email Jasmine Ross, Civic Engagement Coordinator.
