RJI is excited to announce the appointment of Michigan Prosecutor Eli Savit to RJI’s Global Advisory Council. Eli Savit serves as Washtenaw County Prosecutor in Michigan.

Savit supports restorative justice and understands its important value to victims/survivors of violence, those who have harmed others, and communities. He has committed himself also to addressing wrongful convictions which is part of RJI’s agenda.
