Too many Michigan crime victims are not being served by the state’s Crime Victim Services Commission.
There is too much red tape and far too many bureaucratic barriers that block crime victims from getting help from victim compensation to recover.
Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice has over 2,400 members in 78 of Michigan 83 counties. Our members are victims of gun violence, domestic violence, sexual violence and various other types of violence.
Crime victims want to make Michigan safer by stopping cycles of crime and ensuring all crime victims get help. The Safer Michigan Act would eliminate red tape so more survivors get help in their recovery. It would also prioritize rehabilitation by preparing people to be productive upon leaving prison, so they don’t reoffend and we prevent more Michiganders from becoming crime victims.
