CITIZENS FOR PRISON REFORM meets regularly on the third Saturday of each month. Our meetings are secular, free and open to the public. We focus on supporting and educating those who are dealing with the Michigan Department of Corrections, as well discussing ways we can work to bring change that supports families in the system. Each month we have a presenter on various topics. December monthly meeting is held the second Sat. of the month. CPR Monthly Meeting: Date: Saturday, November 18th Time: 10:45 - Meet, eat and greet Presentation: 11:00 – Members of Friends of Restorative Justice of Washtenaw County will present an overview of restorative justice for loved ones of the incarcerated. They will then break the audience into smaller groups to experience a restorative justice technique -- circles. The circles will give audience members a chance to participate, express emotions and build connections to others in this community. Click here to download the Flyer
