My name is Vikki Hankins, I feel as though we are being used as pawns by the Governor of Florida, to detour possible democratic votes.
When I was 19 years old I lost my mom tragically, by the time I turned 21, I was standing in front of a federal judge receiving a 23 years sentence for a nonviolent offense, hence my ineligibility to vote and/or restore my civil rights at this time. Since my release (2008) I've been homeless & jobless; the government seemed to think it was best I take a step back into prison in order to have food and shelter but I refused to give up despite the odds. Governor Scott and his cabinet seem to not care about this, it appears they care more about who gains or maintains control of the White House and the state of Florida, so he's decided to silence our votes and keep us away from our civil rights for another decade!
Thanks for your support!
