The second of 18 items in the Safe and Free DC agenda to pass, Revised Criminal Code Act of 2021 (B24-0416), was unanimously approved on second reading 11/16/22. The legislation is subject to funding and so can be opposed via budget by the Mayor; Congressional approval is still pending. Meanwhile, there is still much public opinion circulating, including some that deliberately shares misinformation. DC Justice Lab Executive Director Patrice Sulton discusses details of this important, wide-ranging legislation on Conversations Toward Repair 11/9/22.
