NAEFI is a civic organization. Certified by the state to register people to vote. Through the Illinois Board of Elections, we have had over 37 Formerly Incarcerated and Convicted People sworn in as deputy regesters.


It is NAEFI's goal to raise awareness to the greater Illinois community that convicted felons can vot in Illinois. and to register all formerly incarcerated and convicted people and their famiies to build a voting block. Lets vote for our wrongs to end and our rights to begin.


We have been honored 

to receive support from director and movie maker Robert Townsend, Comedian Idel Givens, and the west side branch of the NAACP.
