Action of Greater Lansing [MI]: Incarceration: The Ripple Effect, 5:30-8:30 PM July 30

The Michigan Power To Thrive (MPTT) Tri-County Caucus (Ingham, Eaton, Clinton) invites you to our Summer Town Hall event: 'Incarceration: The Ripple Effect'. Join us at the Lansing Public Media Center, 2500 S Washington Ave, Lansing, Michigan 48910.

There will be two parts to this panel based discussion. The first examines the roles that county officials and policymakers have in association with the arrest, sentencing and lockup practices; and the impact that these experiences have on families and households.

The second presents the various family support stakeholders and services that are helping to ensure equitable access to diversionary programs for defendants; provide a greater standard of care for family and dependent household members. 

The audience will be given opportunities to interact through moderator led dialog. Meal offerings will include servings for standard, gluten-free and vegetarian preferences. Because this event is open to the public and free of charge, we ask that you please RSVP either in Eventbrite or Facebook so we can have a proper headcount for meals and seating.
