It's pretty cool when Congress names a special task force after you. It's even cooler when that task force makes recommendations that advance the cause of justice.
In 2014, in an all-too-rare case of bipartisan cooperation, Congress created the Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections to tackle what many have called a crisis in the federal prison system.
Why they named it after Chuck was pretty clear. In the words of the Task Force: "Chuck Colson, who served time in federal prison and upon release founded the world's largest prison ministry, was a vigorous advocate on behalf of the incarcerated at a time when criminal justice reform had virtually no support on either side of the aisle. We salute his leadership and we are grateful for the chance to move the cause forward with our efforts."
