The event was presented by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, an organization that aims to help discrimination against people with convictions.

According to the singer’s Facebook page, Legend is supporting Amendment 4, a Florida ballot question over whether to restore the right to vote for people with felony convictions upon completion of their sentences. The proposed amendment does not extend voting rights to people convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense.
