Criminal Justice Reform ft. Representative Filler

At the Grand Rapids Chamber, we believe Michigan needs criminal justice reform to reduce unnecessary barriers to employment. Over-incarceration costs too much and does not make our communities safer. On this episode of good company, we continued the discussion with Representative Graham Filler, who has been a key leader in criminal justice reform, including the six-bill expungement package which is working its way through the legislature. This policy change would set aside criminal records under certain conditions with the goal of addressing barriers to employment.
