A Closer Look with Bronson Stein

My name is Bronson Stein and I am the Legal Advocate at Bolton Refuge House, Inc in Eau Claire, WI. I am a second-generation victim advocate and strongly believe in the mission of ending violence against women and aiding all victims of crime. I live in western Wisconsin with my family. I am a member of the Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin Advisory Board and the Facilitator of the Eau Claire CCRT, a collaborative professional group designed to address the systemic response to intimate partner violence, domestic violence, and sexual assault.

Marsy's Law at Work in Green County

It’s been about eight months since Wisconsin’s new crime victims’ constitutional amendment went into effect after being overwhelmingly approved by Wisconsin voters last April. In that short time, Wisconsin has already seen numerous examples of Marsy’s Law at work in the criminal justice system, where the amendment is giving victims a stronger voice, and bringing them to the forefront of the legal process.
