Bringing together the experiences and voices of DC residents affected by incarceration, follow our latest project on FaceBook: DC Coalition for Returning Citizens. With this group, we hope to bring advocacy and attention to the unique quest for parole faced by DC’s inmates. DC inmates are the only citizens in the U.S. automatically incarcerated in Federal Prisons, and not state prisons. They are also the only offenders besides federal inmates whose parole is overheard and determined by the U.S. Parole Commission, and not a state parole commission. As such, incarcerated individuals from DC face a special set of challenges in their journey toward freedom and release on parole. This page serves as a source for information, networking, and advocacy for DC inmates and their friends and families. Show your support and “like” us on Facebook!
