Help Central Outreach and Advocacy help those we serve

Those of you who work to help people formerly incarcerated know that employment and housing are essential for rebuilding lives; you also know the difficulties involved in securing adequate identification to secure these essentials. Central Outreach and Advocacy, a partner of C.H.I.P., is asking any of you who have been hindered in helping someone because they did not have a valid Georgia I.D. to join them in asking the Department of Corrections to provide such identification.   If you can help please write a letter. When your letter is ready contact Renée Snead, Director of Public Policy Advocacy, Central Outreach & Advocacy Center; she would like to pick up the letters.  She is available at 404-601-3147 or rsnead@centraloac.org. She will answer any questions you may have.

Your single letter should be addressed to both commissioners (one letter for both) as follows:

Gregory Dozier

Commissioner, Georgia Department of Driver Services

Post Office Box 80447

2206 East View Parkway

Conyers, Georgia 30013

 

Brian Owens

Commissioner, Georgia Department of Corrections

Room 866, East Tower

Floyd Veterans Memorial Building

2 Martin Luther King, Jr., Drive, S.E.

Atlanta, Georgia 30334-4900

           

Dear Commissioners Dozier and Owens:

Here are some things you might want to include in your letter to the commissioners:

  • Brief info about what your agency does
  • Why having a valid GA ID is critical to receiving services provided by your agency
  • A specific example of when your ability to provide a service was hindered because the individual had been released from prison without a valid GA ID
  • Additional barriers you are aware of faced by persons released from prison without a valid GA ID

                             

   

Sincerely,

Your name
