The conservative approach to criminal justice:
fighting crime, supporting victims, and protecting taxpayers.

The House Appropriations Committee names The Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections

| July 25, 2013

The House Appropriations Committee has named a new bipartisan task force for the late Chuck Colson, a champion of prison reform and the founder of Prison Fellowship, Justice Fellowship, and Colson Center for Christian Worldview. The Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections will work to increase public safety, improve offender accountability, reduce recidivism, address victim’s services, and control costs.

Incarcerated for his role in Watergate, Colson vowed to never forget the prisoners who remained behind after his release and mobilized the Church to bring “the transforming love of Christ” to prisoners throughout the United States and overseas.


RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
