Olinda Moyd, who co-chairs the Maryland Alliance for Justice Reform’s Behind the Walls workgroup, said individuals recently released from prison will talk about their experiences and challenges they faced while locked up.

“We hear from many that the inmate grievance process does not work. The process is a nonfunctioning entity,” said Moyd, a retired attorney who worked in the Washington, D.C., public defender’s office for 30 years and now teaches at American University Washington College of Law. “The Department of Corrections does not notify the public or [inmate] population to what’s going on. This position is sorely needed.”
