As part of our outreach efforts, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy is building a program focused on bridging the gap between concerned citizens across the state and those who make policy decisions in Lansing. Its purpose is to create an opportunity for community leaders, activists and everyday heroes to come together to engage more deeply with our mission to make Michigan freer and more prosperous. Partners in the program have the opportunity to help us host an event, testify in front of the Legislature, co-author an op-ed, find other people of influence to join the program, and much more.
Our two most recent partners in this effort are Gary Wozniak, founder and CEO of Recovery Park; and Sarah Hodson, who was featured in our last IMPACT magazine.
Wozniak first partnered with the Center as a donor and has since helped us by collaborating with Kahryn Riley (director of criminal justice reform) and testifying before the Legislature. Hodson engaged with the Mackinac Center on these issues after we interviewed her and her children about their unconventional education at a cyber school. She is a fierce advocate for choice and decided to join us in our efforts to create a brighter future for Michigan’s children.
The Mackinac Center believes that people who people come together to share their perspectives on how government regulations are affecting their lives can be the key to bringing about much-needed change. In the new year, we will officially launch this volunteer-based partnership program, which will equip individuals around the state to be a part of a growing support network for freedom-based policies in our communities and the Capitol. If you are interested in being a part of launching this exciting program or would like more information, please contact Ashley Keimach at email@example.com.
