Reentry Task Force Sends Letter to Local Officials Urging Immediate Action Towards Local Control of the Parole Function: Additional Reports

The Co-Chairs of the DC Reentry Task Force sent a letter to key District officials to “to urge [them] to immediately move forward on efforts to restore the D.C. Government’s control over parole.” The letter was signed-on to by the Rethink Justice DC Coalition, many of its participants as well as other advocacy groups and community members.

The letter was sent to Deputy Mayor Kevin Donahue, Councilman Charles Allen and Councilman Robert White asking them to “act promptly,” so we do not lose an incredible opportunity to end the federal government’s jurisdiction over parole in our city after 22 long years.
