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.
UPCOMING EVENT - OCT. 21ST
PLEASE NOTE: The October annual dinner meeting will be held in the evening at an alternate location. See the flyer below. This takes the place of the regular monthly meeting.
Mark your Calendars! CPR’s Annual Meeting will be October 21st. Last year's Annual Dinner Meeting and program were successful, so we are doing it again this year. Save the date and think about getting more involved. We are asking for volunteers to help plan and serve dinner.
We have an exciting program planned. Edgar Barens will show his Oscar-nominated documentary, “Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall.” He will lead a discussion about efforts to move Michigan and other states towards a system for caring for elderly, infirm, or terminally ill prisoners compassionately and economically.
Thank you to all of the Co-sponsors and supporters, families and advocates who participated in Citizens for Prison Reform Legislative Education Day. We appreciate everyone's contributions, whether it was a financial donation or coming to share your experience and be a part of educating our legislators.
CPR is pleased to announce that videos of many CPR programs are available on its website, www.micpr.org.
