Join us for the SAFE Parole Act Workshop at 10:30 am! This is an opportunity to learn from statewide organizers more about this act and how you can get involved. The Safe And Fair Evaluation (SAFE) Parole Act will make the parole board accountable for its decisions, empower applicants to take concrete action to improve their readiness for parole, and reunite families across the state.

This is a collaboratively organized event and your thoughts and energy are welcome as we work to plan this gathering. Questions, suggestions, and offers to help may be directed to Shelley Friedmann at shelley.friedmann@gmail.com
