NACDL has established a Task Force on Restoration of Rights and Status after Conviction to explore how legal mechanisms for relief from the collateral consequences of conviction are essentially working in state and federal systems, and to develop comprehensive proposals for reform. As part of our plan to meet the Task Force’s objectives, NACDL has been convening hearings in various cities, inviting local individuals working on, or affected, by collateral consequences of a conviction to provide testimony to our 8 member Task Force.
The Task Force will hold hearings at NACDL Washington, DC offices on Wednesday February 20, 2013, Thursday February 21 and Friday February 22, 2013.
The event is open to the public, but you must RSVP as space is very limited

Solace for Sistas
Solace for Sistas is a social and support network of black women committed to human and civil rights; social justice and criminal justice work and activities.
We generally meet once a month to inform and enlighten each other with in-depth and casual conversation; good food & drink; and overall support for each other. On occasion we meet for a cultural or political event or to just have dinner and a movie.
Our two basic rules are:
1. We discuss as little work as possible at our gatherings
2. We do not demean or berate black men
