OUR VISION

The Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration is a broad-based, statewide, non-partisan collaboration representing non-profit, faith-based, advocacy, grassroots, and service organizations united to end mass incarceration in Michigan. The Collaborative seeks to create and restore healthy communities.

MI-CEMI has adopted the following goals and objectives to be effective by the year 2030:

  • A 50% reduction in admissions to prison and jail through the increased use of diversionary programs that meet the goals of sentencing;
  • 75% of the population in each prison facility shall be engaged in productive activities at least 30 hours per week;
  • A 50% reduction in the average length of stay of persons admitted to prison through the implementation of sentencing and parole reforms;
  • A 50% reduction in the return-to-prison rate for persons released from State prison, through a rededication to the Michigan Prisoner Reentry Initiative Model, which includes full community engagement and community funding control, codified in law.
