Support Michigan Prison Reform

Below is a petition supporting the 10-Point Michigan Prison Reform Platform that will be launched at the Juvenile Lifer Rally for Justice on June 18, 2017. The petition calls on lawmakers to pass legislation which will positively impact every prisoner in the State of Michigan serving a short- or long-term sentence.
Each time this petition is signed it will deliver an email to your state senator and state representative with the message that appears in the box below. It only takes a few brief minutes of your time to sign the petition.
To stay up-to-date about our campaign you are encouraged to revisit the petition page from time to time. We are currently developing a social media page people can use to interact with others about important Michigan prison reform which will be available soon.
We are also developing a political action committee and massive email listserv people can join to receive suggestions in the near future about elected official candidates to support around the state who support prison reform.
Elected officials we will create lists to support will include candidates for Governor, Attorney General, state senators, state representatives, mayors, county prosecutors and sheriffs, etc. We will be diligently working to replace incumbents seeking office who do not support prison reform or abuse the powers of their office.
There are currently 100,000 Michigan residents in contact with the criminal justice system (i.e., in prison, jail, on parole, or probation), and tens of thousands of people formerly in contact with the criminal justice system. If they invite family members and friends to support our platform we will be able to realistically galvanize a powerful voting block exceeding a million voters to support our efforts.
Please circulate the petition link widely via social media platforms, email, post to blogs and media web site comment sections, and invite others to do the same.
If you want to see true prison reform in Michigan and an end to failed criminal justice policies we urge you to sign this petition and support our movement for change.
