It will be a first for a group of recovering substance abusers and former prostitutes in Houston.
The Factor has learned Kathryn Griffin Grinan, founder of the Been There Done That program, is taking at least a dozen of her program participants to the polls to vote for the first time in their lives.
Grinan says it’s part of their civic duty and it will also help the women integrate back into society as responsible adults.
The group will meet noon Wednesday at 1201 Franklin in downtown Houston and walk to the voting site together.
Grinan says her goal will not be to influence any of the women on which way to vote but just to vote.
