After ten years of advocacy by Senator Jamie Eldridge and BSN President Dorothy Werst, as of 2021 the Department of Corrections (DOC) now gives Massachusetts State IDs to ALL prisoners as they are released from Massachusetts Prisons.  This is a tremendous step forward in prisoner rehabilitation, giving them a major tool to build a successful life out of prison. 

We continue to advocate for prisoners in the County Jails to receive Massachusetts State IDs when they are released.
