Justice for Crystal Mason

Texas resident Crystal Mason is one of the most recent victims of voter disenfranchisement, a form of voter suppression that affects more than six million Americans.  On March 28, 2018, Judge Ruben Gonzalez sentenced Ms. Mason to five years in prison for “voting illegally as a felon on probation,” and more recently turned down Ms. Mason’s bid for a new trial. Ms. Mason has always maintained that she was unaware that her name had been purged from electoral roll and was ineligible to vote in the 2016 presidential election.  Ms. Mason and her legal team are working together to appeal the decision to a higher court.

Without a lifting of voices and unified support for Ms. Mason and other people of color who have been targets of voter disenfranchisement, government officials will continue to silence and oppress them.

Signing this petition shows that you stand with Crystal Mason, and agree that she should be immediately pardoned.
