MLWI Visits the State Fair

Take a tour of the Wisconsin State Fair led by our very own State Director Luke Martz. The Marsy's Law for Wisconsin team had a great time at the fair where we were able to speak with thousands of Wisconsin residents about victims' rights and received more than 1,000 new signatures on our petition!

August Pledge Update

As summer starts to head down the home stretch, we at Marsy's Law for Wisconsin thought it would be a good time to let you know which legislators and candidates have taken the Stand With Crime Victims Pledge and promised to support victims' rights. As most of our supporters know, our legislation passed with overwhelming bipartisan support on first consideration as 2017 Senate Joint Resolution 53. But our work isn't done! There are still more legislative votes to go to make Marsy's Law a reality in Wisconsin.

Summer Update

Summer is in full swing here in Wisconsin and all of us here at Marsy's Law hope that everyone enjoyed last week's Independence Day celebrations and all the fun that our great state has to offer! One of our favorite things about Summer in Wisconsin is all of the great festivals and events taking place all over the state. Our team has loved having the opportunity to travel to these events and spread the word about Marsy's Law and victims rights.

Pledging to Stand With Crime Victims

With the election season upon us, the Marsy's Law for Wisconsin team has been hard at work getting our Stand With Crime Victims Pledge out to candidates for legislative office from all over the State of Wisconsin. As most of our supporters know, our legislation passed with overwhelming bipartisan support on first consideration as 2017 Senate Joint Resolution 53. However, there are many more votes to go to make Marsy's Law a reality in Wisconsin.

Introducing Clare

My name is Clare Schwirtz and I am an intern for Marsy’s Law of Wisconsin this summer! I am going into my fourth year at UW-Madison with plans to graduate in the spring of 2019. My majors are political science and legal studies and I have thought about continuing these interests by going to law school. I studied abroad in Bangkok, Thailand last semester and have come back with numerous new interests and perspectives.

Training Institute Recap

The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault [WCASA] hosted a training event for advocates around the state of Wisconsin last week. But in our opinion, it was more than just that because it brought together a like-minded group of men and women who have one cause – to help the victims and survivors of sexual assault heal.
