Re-Entry Task Force
The Re-Entry Task Force is a city-wide watchdog group that addresses issues related to D.C. residents who are incarcerated or returning from prison. The task force was the brainchild of CCPC members who, through their work with CCPC’s Transition Assistance Program, recognized that city services for returning residents needed improvement. The task force was formed with other churches, nonprofit organizations, government officials, and some returned residents. Task Force Co-Chair Louise White said that members have testified before the D.C. City Council and have won victories: “The council listens to us.” Meetings are held monthly on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. near Judiciary Square.
