Tomorrow morning, Councilmember Robert White will be introducing the "Restore the Vote Amendment Act of 2019," a bill to restore voting rights to DC residents who are incarcerated for felony convictions. He will be holding a press conference at 8:45am in the Wilson Building.

Since DC no longer operates its own prison, most individuals who are convicted of a felony in DC are sent to one of the over 120 federal prisons throughout the country. The CIC will be looking into how this bill, if passed, would be implemented in locations outside of the District, and will be in communication with the Council as well as the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
On Sunday, June 2, several groups are hosting a Homecoming Celebration for Returning Citizens. The event will have free food in addition to featured participants that can help with employment, housing, and the expungement process. Please see the attached flyer for additional information.
