Sunday Morning Wake-up Call producer Dan Gould takes a look back at three stories from 2018 that are still relevant today.

In November 2018 residents of the state of Florida voted 65% to 35% to restore the rights of felons who have served out their prison time. But in Virginia, even after serving their time in prison, felons still cannot vote.

In our first story, Claire Gastanaga talked with Sunday Morning Wake-up Call host Rick Moore about her work with the Virginia Chapter of the ACLU to restore voting rights for Virginia felons.

Our second story comes from Carmenita Higginbotham who talks with Rick about the mysteries and history of the Disney corporation.

We close the program with three eye witness accounts from the August 12, 2017 Unite-The-Right rally in Charlottesville. Christina Rivera, Eze Amos, and Lynn Windsor recall their memories from that difficult day.
