Restorative Justice @ Chelsea District Library at McKune Room
Sep 13 @ 7:00 pm – Sep 13 @ 8:30 pm

Over 44,000 Michigan citizens are
incarcerated in Michigan prisons, and hundreds of thousands are serving
probation or parole sentences in the community. Between 1980 and 2010,
Michigan’s prison population grew at 29 times the rate of the state’s total
population. Join us as Mary King discusses Restorative Justice as a potential
alternative. Restorative Justice focuses
on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with victims and the
community with the goal of diverting people from prison. Learn how this process
is being used today and its potential impact for our community.

About the presenter: Mary King is the Executive Director for the
Michigan Council on Crime and Delinquency, Michigan’s oldest criminal justice
advocacy organization. In addition, she
facilitates the Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration and was
formerly the coordinator of the Michigan Prisoner Reentry Initiative for
Washtenaw and Livingston Counties.
