Join the Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration to connect with groups and leaders across the state who are working together to see that by 2030:
- There is a 50% reduction in admissions to prison and jail through the increased use of diversion programs that meet the goals of sentencing;
- 75% of the population in each prison facility is engaged in productive activities at least 30 hours per week;
- There is a 50% reduction in the average length of stay of persons admitted to prison through the implementation of sentencing and parole reforms; and,
- There is 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.
