Transforming Prisons, Restoring Lives: Final Recommendations of the Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections Press Conference and Public Briefing
January 26, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 7:05 am EST
On behalf of Chair J.C. Watts, Jr. and Vice-Chair Alan B. Mollohan, you are invited to join the Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections and Members of Congress for the release of the Task Force’s recommendations for improving the federal corrections system.
Registration is required to attend this event.
The Colson Task Force was established by Congressional mandate in 2014 as a nine‐person, bipartisan, blue ribbon panel charged with developing practical, data-driven recommendations to enhance public safety by creating a more just and efficient federal corrections system. Informed by over a year of fact-finding, rigorous data analysis, and discussions with key experts and stakeholders, the independent Task Force’s recommendations to the US Congress, the President, and the Attorney General provide a blueprint for reforms to the federal corrections system that are sensible, cost-effective strategies to reduce crime and restore lives.
This event with the Colson Task Force is sponsored by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner and other Members of Congress.
