About Us

Safe & Just Michigan (SJM) is a statewide, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Lansing, Michigan. Safe & Just Michigan envisions a Michigan in which all are safe in their communities and everyone is responsible for creating accountability, safety and justice. We work to reduce the harm caused by both crime and unnecessary incarceration.

Safe & Just Michigan conducts research, educates, advocates and mobilizes support for evidence-based reforms that can improve public safety and eliminate unnecessary and wasteful corrections spending. We promote smart investments in services and programs proven to reduce crime and promote healthy, thriving communities.

Safe & Just Michigan strives to be a dynamic, relationship-focused, community-connected organization. It has grown from three to nine regular staff in the last five years, not including a lobbyist and a range of other consultants, and is continuing to grow. SJM is a partner of the Alliance for Safety and Justice and participates in multiple collaborations.
