Empower Reentry: Unlocking Opportunities for All Michiganders

You can’t get a job or an apartment without your birth certificate and state ID.” – Chuck Warpehoski, MI-CEMI Program Director

On January 25th 2024, WSJM.com released an article entitled, ‘Legislation seeks to ensure inmates have personal identification documents upon release.‘ The Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration advocates for a package of bills awaiting Michigan Senate approval. This legislation aims to guarantee that individuals returning from incarceration receive vital documents. MI-CEMI’s goal is to turn this support into law.

We urge Michiganders to take action by contacting your state senator about the issue. Help build a Michigan where every citizen can rebuild their life. Act now – click here to contact Your Senator
