McCormack and Zahra are seeking input from Michigan residents to help identify the needs they have on issues relating to the civil branch of the law. The information gathered from residents will help shape a statewide plan to fill in the gaps of service for civil legal needs.
“We’re trying to take inventory of what’s out there,” McCormack said. “It’s a way for us to hear directly from the public about their experience of trying to navigate the court system on their own.”
The task force wants to hear from affected residents as well as “community leaders or representatives who have a sense on the ground of what (residents) need most,” she said.
