(Washington, DC) – On Monday, April 18, at 12 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser and District leaders will recognize National Reentry Month and announce that 200 District residents, identified by the National Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (NICJR) as being at highest risk of involvement in gun violence in the District, have been assigned a multidisciplinary team to include a Credible Contact, a Pathfinder, and a member of the Mayor Bowser’s Cabinet.
