On November 7, DC Greens and our D.C. jail food reform coalition partners hosted, “Giving D.C. Jail Food a Fresh Start: A Community Conversation,” an evening centered on the results from of roughly 300 D.C. jail residents about food access and quality in the jail.

DC Greens extends warm thanks to all our partners on the event and in this critical work: Impact Justice, DC Justice Lab, Daniel Rosen, and The Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness at The George Washington University for your collaboration and partnership, DC Councilmember Brooke Pinto for your leadership on the FRESH STARTS Act, and the returned citizens and community members who have so graciously contributed their time and expertise!
