In “Collateral Damage: Part II,” we document the harmful effects of voter suppression on incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people in Florida. We also examine a little-known strategy called “prison gerrymandering” that perpetuates political inequality in the state.

In this episode, we meet some of the unsung heroes fighting back against discriminatory voter suppression efforts in their communities.
