Restoration of Rights: Restoring your rights is important to regain many important benefits

including the right to vote, social security, child custody, state employment, the ability to serve in the military, and educational assistance.  In addition, restoring your rights could also help eliminate barriers to housing, SNAP benefits, and occupational/business licenses.

To learn more about restoring your rights, please visit Maricopa County Justice Services or ACLUAZ

Get your voice heard at the Arizona Legislature by learning how to use the Request To Speak System. The Request To Speak program (RTS) is designed to allow the public to register an opinion on bills listed on agendas and to request to speak on a bill in a committee. Your "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" along with your comments can be made on-line using the RTS.  You can also request to speak during a committee hearing.

Check out the Request to Speak Manual and watch this video to learn How to Use the Request to Speak System in Arizona.

Contact your legislator via phone, email or written letter.  You can find your representative by visiting the Arizona Legislature.
