Michigan’s prisoners serve longer sentences, on average, than all other prisoners across the nation. They are living proof that extreme punishment doesn’t work. People serving life and long-term prison sentences are proven to age out of crime, but are trapped in a merciless system that doesn’t recognize growth. Meanwhile their families and communities suffer, robbed of vital connections and resources. Join a community teach-in on Saturday Nov 13th at Prospect Park in Ypsilanti, MI from 12:00 to 3:00 PM and hear from a group of former long-serving people and activists about prison, people and how we get free.
