Young Dems Washtenaw Logo (Progress Can't Wait)Join us at our spring kick-off meeting on Sunday, April 7th at the Westgate Ann Arbor Library in the Side Branch Room from 2:00-4:00pm

We’ll discuss criminal justice reform with Washtenaw County’s progressive prosecutors, Eli Savit and Victoria Burton-Harris!

Learn about their efforts to create a fairer justice system and explore ways to get involved locally, from becoming a precinct delegate to joining township boards, as we outline our 2024 plans.

Snacks and beverages will be provided 

Eli Savit, a lifelong public servant and Washtenaw County native, has built his career on fighting for justice—from teaching in public schools to clerking for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, leading criminal justice reform in Detroit, and taking on big adversaries as a public-interest lawyer. Now serving as Washtenaw County Prosecutor, Eli is committed to equitable justice for all. A respected advocate for children and families, he also teaches at the University of Michigan Law School, focusing on educational equity and environmental law.

Victoria Burton-Harris is a Flint native and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor alumna with a deep commitment to criminal law and social justice. With a career beginning in family law and criminal defense, she has become a prominent advocate for fair and equitable justice, emphasizing community investment over incarceration. Victoria’s work focuses on transformative justice, education, and her role in community organizations aiming to break cycles of incarceration and support vulnerable populations.
