SPOKANE, WA (October 19, 2017) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) and Georgia Congressman Doug Collins (GA-09) joined the Peaceful Communities Roundtable in Spokane, Washington, for a Criminal Justice Reform Forum to learn from leaders in the field and hear stories from people who’ve experienced issues within the criminal justice system in America.
“I’m so thankful to have Rep. Doug Collins join us for this important discussion. The only way to do this right is to hear directly from people who’ve experienced it, to listen, and to hear their stories and ideas,” said McMorris Rodgers. “This was a great discussion and I look forward to continuing these important conversations about the future of our Eastern Washington community.”
“Thoughtful justice reform involves listening to our neighbors. It means we’re committed to learning from the people who see opportunities to build stronger, safer communities,” said Collins. “Conversations like these open the doors to solutions for preventing crime and promoting compassion, and I’m grateful to join my friend Cathy McMorris Rodgers and the Spokane community for today’s exchange.”
