New Website Launch and Transition

Dear MPRCA Supporter:

We've got exciting news to share with you. Your hard work and dedication to bring about prison reform in the state of Michigan has not been in vain. As opposed to giving up on this matter after the pandemic made it impossible to accomplish our goal in 2020, we have doubled-down with our efforts, and are well on our way to reaching our goal in 2022, or possibly even sooner. To accomplish our goals we have created a 501(c)(4) nonprofit social welfare organization - Michigan Justice Advocacy (MJA). We are actively collaborating with other criminal justice organizations, key stakeholders, and multiple Michigan State Legislators.

It is important that you understand that MJA has not been created to only take on the issue of restoring Good Time legislation, it was created to give us an opportunity to challenge other areas of unfair treatment within the Michigan criminal justice system as a whole. Advocating for prison reform that is comparable to what other states have enacted

as well as to seek a more rehabilitative prison environment. Our long term goal is to create a justice system that is balanced and proportional.

MJA is composed of several of the original MPRCA members. Ms. Amani Sawari who had originally spearheaded the MPRCA effort has taken a different path in her fight for justice and equality, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.

Because the MPRCA website will soon be transitioning over to the MJA website, this will be the last message you receive from MPRCA. In order to stay up to date on our accomplishments, projects and current events, you may click here to visit the MJA website, where you may also elect to receive automatic updates.

You may also complete the Michigan Justice Advocacy Volunteer Opportunities form to become an active participant in this quest for justice. You might be surprised by the ways in which you can help. Click here to complete the form. It is only with the help of individuals like yourself that we can hope to achieve our goals.

For those of you who are unable to volunteer for a more active role, we would humbly ask that you simply take the time to visit our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page, like it, and share it with others. Building a coalition of individuals advocating for criminal justice reform is our first step in obtaining the type of meaningful reform we are all seeking.

GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on December 1, 2020. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. We humbly ask you to participate this year by considering how you can help support Michigan Justice Advocacy, whether through volunteering, donating money or resources to the MJA cause. Anything that can help us move our campaign forward is appreciated.

In closing, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and dedication. We believe that if we are all willing to focus on the important things that unite us, such as family and the value of all human beings, with your help, and God's blessings, we will reach our goals.

God Bless,


Michigan Justice Advocacy
