The Secretary of Administration has been working with stakeholders from across the Commonwealth gathering names of nonviolent felons to have their rights restored by Governor Bob McDonnell. The Rolling for Freedom Project founded by Clovia Lawrence is a stakeholder and will continue to gather names and assistance with online contact sheets of those seeking restoration of rights.
