Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin and New Horizons Partner to Display Silhouettes at La Crosse County Courthouse to Raise Awareness of Crime Victims’ Rights

[LA CROSSE, WI] – Vibrant red silhouettes will soon grab the attention of the La Crosse community. Marsy's Law for Wisconsin and New Horizons Shelter & Outreach Centers are partnering up to display silhouettes at the La Crosse County Courthouse on Wednesday, July 27 to help raise awareness of crime victims’ rights in Wisconsin. The silhouettes will highlight various rights included under Wisconsin’s crime victims’ rights constitutional amendment known as Marsy’s Law. The silhouette’s powerful imagery reminds our community that victims and survivors of crime walk among us relatively unseen.

Sierra Lyon, the New Horizon development coordinator and Nela Kalpic of Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin, will both be available for interviews on July 27 upon request. 

WHAT:
Eight silhouettes will be displayed at the La Crosse County Courthouse. Each silhouette includes a Marsy’s Law right written on it such as the right to restitution and the right to be heard. More information about each Marsy’s Law right can be easily accessed using scannable QR codes on the silhouettes. There will also be QR codes to connect people to New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers. 

WHEN:
Wednesday, July 27; 9:00AM-3:00PM 

WHERE:
La Crosse County Courthouse 

333 Vine St. La Crosse, WI
