In the fourth episode of The South Florida Access, host Amanda Bazil speaks with Mahlia Lindquist, executive director of LEAP, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping incarcerated women transcend their past. She is also urging people to vote for Florida Amendment 4, an initiative that would restore voting rights to most felons — except those convicted of murder or a sexual offense — after completing their sentence and probation. 

Mahlia discusses how LEAP got its start, the effectiveness of their rehabilitation program, how Amendment 4 will affect the lives of  the people she’s trying to help. 

Later, Bazil speaks with Rebecca K. Mclemore, assistant manager of Dragon Fly Thrift Store Boutique and an ex-convict.
