The Council for Court Excellence works to improve the administration of justice in the local and federal courts and related agencies in the Washington metropolitan area. Formed in Washington, DC in January 1982, the Council is a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic organization.
During CCE's annual December board meeting, the organization's Executive Committee presented longtime Board Director Steve Grafman with the Horsky Award, given to board directors in recognition of their exemplary service to the Council.
On Thursday, December 10, 2015, CCE held its annual December board meeting and program. This years program was titled "Beyond Second Chances: What is Working and What is Needed to Help Returning Citizens Succeed", pointing to CCE's reentry work that goes back to 2006 and includes legislative proposals, policy recommendations, and structural reform in the areas of expungement, unemployment and recidivism, parole, and clemency.
CCE is pleased to share its 2014 Annual Report with you. This publication sums up an exceptionally busy and productive year for CCE - of solid reform activities, new partnerships and initiatives, and a few challenging transitions. Thank you for making 2014 a great year for our organization, and for helping us seek justice system accessibility for all.
