Join us for the first meeting of Governor Whitmer’s Jails Task Force. DJC’s Founding ED Amanda Alexander was appointed to the task force this spring, and will be working to ensure that those most directly impacted by incarceration—the formerly incarcerated and the loved ones of those currently in jails and prisons—are heard. This will be the first of several public meetings over the next six months, and we hope that you will join us.
