MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Local Black Lives Matter activist Pamela Moses isn’t giving up on her hope to run for Memphis mayor. She is appealing a judge’s ruling this week that she is still on probation.
Moses believes she has completed her sentence. Until it’s complete, she can’t get her citizen rights restored, which would allow her to run for mayor.
Wednesday, Moses went before a different judge. She asked the judge not to rule on restoring her citizen rights until the appeals court rules on her sentencing.
It is not expected the appeals court will rule on Moses’ case by July 18th, which is the election deadline. That would essentially make Moses ineligible to run.
