Great news on the Maryland Women's Prerelease Center!

A message From CCDWC President Cindy Yoe:

Three days ago, the Senate voted to override the Governor’s Veto of the Gender-Responsive Prerelease Act.  Yesterday, the House of Delegates did the same.  Maryland will now be required to provide equitable prerelease facilities and services to its returning women.  

Thank you so much for allowing our group to offer testimony and support for this law and for keeping up the pressure on your lawmakers to override Hogan's veto.  From what I understand, just prior to the Senate vote, the Senate President had a meeting with the Chiefs of Staffs and asked what they were hearing about from constituents.  Many of them indicated that they were hearing a lot on the veto override.  Proof positive that all our work paid off.  Thank you so much.

We are at the end of the road on this work.  But there is more work to do.  Stay tuned.

Cindy
