Ex-offenders Re-entry into Society Focus of Public Forum

Tue., Feb. 15 (6:30-8:30pm): The Northwest Columbia Heights Community Association will be holding a Public Forum in the upstairs auditorium of St Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church (1525 Newton St., NW). The program, “Triumphing Over Persistent Crime Problems in Our Neighborhoods Through Community Action,” will feature a panel discussion by community leaders and representatives from the U.S. Attorney’s Office — with a question and answer period — on the topic “Ex-Offender Reentry: The Community’s Greatest Public Safety Challenge” followed by small group discussions.

Featured Guests will include Columbia Heights block Captains and neighbors from Newton Street, Josue Salmeron, Tania Hutchinson and Tom Cochran; U Street public safety leaders Brian Card and Sushupta Sudarshan; and from the Trinidad neighborhood, Kathy Henderson, court watch leader for Ward 5. Also joining in the program will be Courtney Stewart, representing Mentoring Works2 and the Reentry Network for Ex-Offenders as well as Prosecutors Stephen Prest and Shana Fulton from the U.S Attorney’s Office.
