Formerly incarcerated individuals are important leaders in the movement for cost-effective and evidence-based policies that focus on promoting safety, saving taxpayer dollars, and reducing the state’s over-reliance on incarceration. Safe & Just Michigan believes this partnership is critical in transforming the criminal justice system in Michigan.

Safe & Just Michigan partners with formerly incarcerated leaders to promote strategies that create second chances for people returning to the community from prison or jail.

New safety solutions

Safe & Just Michigan is proud to partner with formerly incarcerated leaders and their families as we work together to ensure all who are released from prison or jail have a meaningful second chance at living a productive life.

By increasing our investment in education, job training, and public health services for prisoners and formerly incarcerated people we help create safe and thriving communities.
