Sign this petition in support of acquiring quality services and a loving environment for more than 70k returning citizens in the Nation’s Capital. We can no longer turn a blind eye to the fact that we haven’t had a quality re-entry center (formally known as halfway houses) in DC for more than 30 years. Therefore, we support opportunities like having a quality, best practice re-entry center in ward 7 or wherever the current opportunity exist as our brothers and sisters are now being sent outside of DC which we almost guarantee our love ones will not have a successful transition back into society.  

We have 4600 Prisoners across the country in over 100 locations from DC to California.These citizens will be coming back home and where will they go as they have already been disconnected from their communities and families because we do not have our own prison in DC.

The humane treatment of Returning citizens with quality, supportive programs, training, real opportunities is what is needed and is what we are advocating for. Given the challenges faced with the potential deadly outcomes from Covid-19, our families locked away in the system are in danger, along with the entire Returning Citizens’ Community. Stand in Solidarity with the 70,000 Strong and their families making sure our brothers and sisters have a fighting chance when they come home.

We demand and need a quality re-entry center or a support mechanism that deal with barriers that exist inside and outside of the criminal justice system.

Sign here if you believe that our brothers and sisters deserve better options than what we have had as our challenges have only grown and gotten worse. Remember throughout history returning citizens have been the diamonds in the rough, re-polished and given a chance to shine and uplift humanity as we see throughout the holy books. We ask you to stand with us so we can stand with our children, families and communities.

Thank you for your support,

70k Strong
