Face to Face: North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum

December 19, 2018
Gov. Doug Burgum became the latest governor to join the Face to Face initiative, a national call to action encouraging policymakers to personally engage with the people who are closest to the correctional system. The governor and First Lady Kathryn Burgum met with Fargo resident Jyssica Noble to learn about her struggles with substance addiction and her experience in Free Through Recovery, a statewide program that provides recovery support services for people in the criminal justice system who have behavioral health needs. In speaking with Noble, Burgum joins a bipartisan group of 14 other governors who have participated in the Face to Face initiative so far. Face to Face is sponsored by the National Reentry Resource Center and the CSG Justice Center in partnership with the Association of State Correctional Administrators, JustLeadershipUSA, and the National Center for Victims of Crime.
