Family Advisory Board
The Family Advisory Board is currently managed under Citizens for Prison Reform. This work is being done on a volunteer basis by all serving on the board. If you have interest in serving on the Family Advisory Board, please download the application here. We have specific members of diversity and regions we are seeking. Please fill out the application and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information will be sent to you upon receipt of your application.
The Board meets quarterly with MDOC Administration. You must also be available for monthly phone conferences and intermittent work assignments/research to assist in promoting family engagement.
The Family Advisory Board is seeking input from those who have an incarcerated loved one. We invite you to share your deepest concerns and the issues that you feel need to be addressed within the Michigan prison system.
We would also love to hear your ideas about any possible solutions to these issues you may have.
This information will be utilized as we meet with the Department of Corrections quarterly to work on bringing change to their policies and practices and suggest solutions that create greater family inclusion.
Thank you for taking the time to provide value insight for the Family Advisory Board. Together we hope to bring about positive change within our prison system.
