CHANGE OF VENUE for Returning to Society from Prison: What We Can Do Better

February 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

logo A Brighter Way

A Brighter Way is hosting an event that  will explore the unique factors that have led to Washtenaw County leading the state in returns to prison and jail. We will have a panel, brief individual presenters, and Q&A from audience members. The group will discuss underlying issues but also practical solutions to the problem that have been proven to work but are not adequately supported and funded. The biggest challenges are accessible housing, quality employment, but also a lack of funding for quality services. The more people know about these issues, the better we can come together as a community to do something about them. 

 Panelists will include:
Jeff Irwin, State Senator
Kyle Kaminski, Legislative Affairs, Michigan Department of Corrections
Tom Harrison, Owner, Michigan Ladder
Malachi Muhammad, Employee, The Lunch Room
Cozine Welch, Executive Director, A Brighter Way
