About This Meeting

The Chief Justice and Lt. Governor believe in safe and strong communities, restoring the dignity of each person, and making sure our justice system works for every family. They are partnering to reform Michigan’s criminal justice system and increase access to justice because they are passionate about equal justice for all and understand that stable and strong families and communities are critical to businesses seeking to grow and create good-paying jobs.

McCormack and Gilchrist have been leading a bipartisan task force focused on a key piece of the criminal justice reform puzzle – understanding who is in jail, why they are there, and whether changes in policies or laws could make our justice system fairer, more effective, and better at preventing crime to safeguard neighborhoods. Their presentation will highlight the task force’s recently-released findings and recommendations and detail other reform initiatives ranging from online dispute resolution to easier expungement of criminal records.

Join us to learn how a more just state is a safer, stronger state.
