No For-Profit Immigrant Detention Camps in Michigan

Michigan is one of 4 states that still automatically charges 17 year olds as adults, no matter the offense. Youthful offenders are subjected to psychological and physical abuse in adults jails and some prisons. Furthermore, they don't recieve rehabilitative services in the adult system that would otherwise be provided via family courts. If you'd like to know more, please join us.

Day of Empathy Michigan

The Day of Empathy is a national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for the millions of Americans behind bars and their loved ones. On March 5, 2019, Americans impacted by the criminal justice system nationwide and their allies will meet with lawmakers to share their stories and experiences. To reform our criminal justice system, we must first humanize and empathize with those who are affected by it.

Without empathy, we cannot achieve meaningful policy changes that keep our communities safe, our families whole, and our economy strong.
